Powder Flow is the ability of a bulk of particles being able to flow in a specific manner within a piece of equipment. A predictable powder flow is vital when it comes to manufacturing and product quality in various industries. The unpredictable nature of powders can cause major disruption in these industries, such as production downtown and sometimes, entire plant shutdowns to correct the restrictions and stoppages. This can be costly for the business and cause a shortfall in products.
Powder flow characteristics are important when it comes to production and testing the powder flow properties is essential to avoiding problems in production lines and optimising processes so that output can be maintained. At Lab Unlimited, we can offer solutions to eliminate any flow products by analysing powder flow behaviour quickly and easily. Our Flow Powder Testers are ideal for manufacturers who process powders daily, want to minimise or eliminate downtime, and cut down on expenses that occur when hoppers discharge erratically or fail completely.
