Powder Testing Instrumentation

Our Range of Products

Freeman Technology specialises in powder testing systems for quantifying the flow properties of powders and has over 15 years' experience in powder flow and powder characterisation. Expert teams provide comprehensive support alongside the company’s range of products.

The FT4 Powder Rheometer®

The FT4 Powder Rheometer®, the flagship product from Freeman Technology, is a universal powder tester.

In addition to the patented dynamic methodology, where a powder’s resistance to flow is measured whilst the powder is in motion, the FT4 also includes a shear cell for measuring the powder’s shear strength, a wall friction kit to quantify how a powder shears with respect to the surfaces of process equipment (in accordance with ASTM Standard D7891), as well as accessories for measuring bulk properties, such as density, compressibility and permeability.

The range of measurement capabilities the FT4 provides makes it the world’s most versatile powder testing instrument for measuring and understanding powder behaviour.

Uniaxial Powder Tester

The Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT) provides an accurate and robust measure of the uniaxial unconfined yield strength (uUYS) of a bulk solid – a parameter widely used to assess and rank the powder flowability.

The UPT also quantifies key fundamental powder properties including Bulk Density and Compressibility.

It is a quick, reliable and easy to use device which delivers value to scientists, process engineers and QC analysts working in a diverse range of bulk solids handling industries.

The UPT offers a low cost, powder testing solution.

Lenterra Sensor Instrumentation

Freeman Technology is the exclusive global partner for Lenterra sensor instrumentation.

The systems provide in-line, real-time powder flow measurement to enhance process understanding, and improve manufacturing efficiency and quality in number of industries.

The Drag Force Flow (DFF) and the RealShear™ Wall Shear Stress (WSS) sensors, allow users to obtain important information without interrupting their manufacturing process using fibre optic technology. The data produced optimises cycle times, reduces costs, and improves compliance and productivity.
