Our research laboratory aims at responding to the challenges linked with the development and characterization of new materials and particulate solids with controlled usage properties with regard to the processes. We use the Freeman FT4 for different studies. We are very satisfied with the performance of this equipment, the technical support of Freeman, the advice and different discussions about measurements and data interpretation.
FT4 is a very versatile equipment with high degree of precision and reproducibility. It is a very valuable tool for a solid dosage formulator to design and optimize formulations with a small scale (<30 grams) of product. It is also a great tool for process trouble shooting. The technical support from FreemanTechnology is super. You can expect responses within 24 hours.
We've purchased FT4 in our Laboratory of Bulk Materials at Technical University of Ostrava, (Czech Republic) and we're very satisfied. The FT4 Powder Rheometer is a very useful and multilateral device to measure mechanical and physical properties of powders. Especially the combination of user defined advanced tests with aeration unit gives a huge potential in fluidization and pneumatic conveying research.
Fantastic training and equipment. Applications Specialist is very friendly and professional and we enjoyed our time with him. The equipment is the most professionaly designed and user friendly equipment we've used.
As a particle technology contract manufacturer, my company relies heavily on robust, state of the art analytical techniques for measuring powders. The FT4 fills this role nicely. Its software is by far and away the best software I have used for any analytical instrument. It is very good at walking me through each test setup without adding extra work. I have only been working with the FT4 for a short time, but I feel confident in running each test available on the instrument. Their customer support is always prompt and very helpful when I have questions. Working with Freeman Technology is very easy and pleasant.
The FT4 Powder Rheometer has proven to be useful for formulation/process development as well as describing subtle excipient and powder blend differences. The documentation and the UI make instrument operation incredibly intuitive and easy, even for first-time users. Our interactions with the team at Freeman Tech have all been very positive. They are strong technically and very responsive to requests for technical support and service. After just a few short months of routine use, the FT4 has already been established as a welcome addition to the list of powder characterization tools for research and commercial applications.
