Fast and simple analysis of powder flow behaviour in industrial processing equipment, according to Brookfield, this is what the powder flow tester PFT delivers.

It is a helpful tool for manufacturers who process powders daily and want to minimize or eliminate the downtime and expense that occur when hoppers or silos fail to discharge. With the new tester customers can also perform QC checks on incoming materials, quickly characterize new formulations for flowability and adjust composition to match the flow behaviour of established products. The Brookfield powder flow tester features a various test options including: flow function, time consolidation, wall friction and bulk density. Time estimates for duration of each test are automatically calculated before start of test in case adjustments are needed. The operator also has a choice of graphical or tabular data output format for each test plus calculations for arching dimension, rathole diameter, and hopper half-angle. The system includes Powder Flow Pro Software, all accessories for handling powder samples, and features a small footprint that fits conveniently on a benchtop.
