Powders play an integral part in the production of many products and it is widely acknowledged that they are challenging to handle. It is therefore vital for engineers and processors to have a good understanding of powder behaviour in order to optimise productivity and improve quality. This is particularly applicable ... read more
Powders are widely recognised as presenting a tougher processing challenge than gases and liquids, and relevant characterisation can be equally demanding.
From recognising the difference between powders and particles to understanding the limitations of a single number approach. Jamie Clayton, Operations Director at Freeman Technology, shares some critical insights about powder ... read more

There are many variables that influence powder behaviour. In an article with CPhI, Tim Freeman (Managing Director, Freeman Technology) reviews the importance of a critical particle parameter - shape. Many powder processors recognise that particle shape influences powder behaviour, perhaps most significantly flowability, but until relatively recently it has ... read more
Freeman Technology is pleased to announce the release of ‘Understanding the Impact of High-Shear Blending’.
In many industries, powders are combined with other powders, or binders, in high-shear blending operations, forming homogeneous mixtures for further downstream processing. The diverse range of blender sizes, geometries and methodologies means that performance can vary ... read more
“What Makes a Powder Flow”, featured in CPhI, considers some of the many variables that influence powder behavior. The main focus is the impact of different parameters on how powders flow, given that this is such a critical performance attribute. Poor flowability lies at the heart of many powder processing ... read more
