Powder flowability expert Tim Freeman, Managing Director of Freeman Technology will present on the topic of advanced powder characterisation and its relevance in powder processing at Interphex Japan, 27 – 29 June 2012, Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo. Visitors will also have the opportunity to get hands on with Freeman Technology’s FT4 Powder Rheometer in the East Hall on the booth of Malvern Japan Division of Spectris Co. Ltd, Freeman Technology’s distribution partner in this territory.
Taking place from 13:40 to 14:40 on Wednesday, 27 June, Mr Freeman’s presentation; ‘Advanced measurement and understanding of powder flow properties’, will describe the application of the FT4 Powder Rheometer to predict the in-process behaviour of powders.
The FT4 Powder Rheometer uses patented 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. The resulting information aids efficient plant design and supports the effective troubleshooting and optimisation of powder handling processes.
