Freeman Technology specialises in systems for measuring the flow properties of powders and has over 20 years’ experience in powder flow and powder characterisation. The company invests significantly in R&D and applications development, and provides detailed know-how alongside its universal powder tester, the FT4 Powder Rheometer®. Expert teams guide and support users around the world in addressing their individual powder challenges, focusing on delivering the most relevant information for the process. The result is world-leading solutions for understanding powder behaviour - in development, formulation, scale-up, processing, quality control, or anywhere that powders have a role.
The FT4 Powder Rheometer uses unique dynamic methodology, a fully automated shear cell and several bulk property tests, including density, compressibility and permeability, to quantify powder properties in terms of flow and processability. Systems are installed around the world in the battery, chemical, pharmaceutical, toners, foods, powder coatings, metals, ceramics, cosmetics, and many other, industries. They deliver data that maximise process and product understanding, accelerating R&D and formulation towards successful commercialisation, and supporting the long term optimisation of powder processes.
Founded in 1989 as a developer of automated testing systems for materials characterisation, the company has focused exclusively on powders since the late 1990s and in 2018 became part of Micromeritics Instrument Corporation. The company’s R&D, manufacturing and commercial headquarters are in Gloucestershire, UK, with operations and distribution partners in key global territories.
In 2007 the company received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation and in 2012 the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
