Exploring the impact of particle size on bulk powder properties


Wednesday 24 April 2019

In a series of articles on LinkedIn, Tim Freeman, Managing Director of Freeman Technology, draws on over 20 years of experience in the industry and provides some valuable insights into powder flowability.

Earlier posts have highlighted the fact that there are many variables that influence powder behaviour. Controlling powder properties, particularly flowability, is essential for efficient handling and processing, and is made much easier by some understanding of which variables to change, and how, to achieve desirable behaviour. In his latest instalment, ‘Exploring the Impact of Particle Size on Bulk Powder Properties’, one of the most widely recognised variables affecting powder flow properties, particle size, is reviewed.

This article looks at:

  • The effects of decreasing particle size
  • The impact on powder flowability
  • Measurement relevance
