Freeman Technology is pleased to announce the release of ‘Capsule Filling’.
Formulations delivered in capsule form require suitable characteristics to ensure a precise and accurate fill of the dosing capsule. This application note presents a study using the FT4 Powder Rheometer to evaluate three powdered formulations used in the production of ... read more
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
