Freeman Technology will present new research into quantifying the effects of powder flow additives on pharmaceutical powders at this year’s Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS), held from 18 – 20 November 2013 in Somerset NJ, USA. Entitled <
Understanding and controlling powder behaviour, and particularly how powders flow, is crucial for process optimisation. The new research from Freeman Technology complements the trends within the pharmaceutical industry towards quality by design (QbD) and continuous manufacturing. Mike Delancy’s presentation will examine how dynamic powder testing can be used to enhance product development activities, and how it offers the sensitivity to detect and quantify even subtle changes in powder behaviour following the addition of flow additives.
The FT4 Powder Rheometer is a universal powder tester that offers the most comprehensive range of powder characterisation methods available, encompassing bulk, shear and dynamic flowability measurements. With seven standard tests, yielding a broad range of powder properties, the FT4 provides a breadth of process relevant information that is directly applicable to all industrial powder processes.
Mike Delancy will be available to discuss any aspect of powder characterisation. Simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting at EAS 2013.
