Freeman Technology, a global leader in powder characterisation, has launched a new website, providing an authoritative knowledge base for formulation scientists, process engineers and product developers working with powders. The new site provides a detailed overview of the complexity of powders and the challenges they present, and uses industry specific examples to demonstrate how powder rheology has been used to solve processing problems.
The website uses simple, straightforward language and introduces new videos and animations to illustrate the fundamentals of powder behaviour and the basic principles of powder testing. A comprehensive library of published articles, white papers and conference presentations provides easy access to the expertise that Freeman Technology has amassed over more than 14 years of working with powders, and showcases in-house research, industrial collaborations and unrivalled application experience in a variety of industrial sectors.

Freeman Technology specialises in providing systems for measuring the flow properties of powders to directly support industrial powder handling and processing. The company’s FT4 Powder Rheometer® uses patented dynamic methodology, a fully automated shear cell and several bulk property tests to quantify powder properties that directly correlate with process and product performance. This instrument has been successfully used to develop new products and optimise manufacturing processes in many industries. These range from pharmaceutical, food and powder coatings to metal powders and ceramics.
