Freeman Technology, the powder characterisation specialists, will be exhibiting at Powtech, to demonstrate pioneering technology for in-line, real time process monitoring via an exclusive partnership with Lenterra, manufacturers of optical flow sensor technology
In-line, real time process monitor control using the Drag Force Flow Sensor
Lenterra’s Drag Force Flow (DFF) and Wall Shear Stress (RealShear) probes provide continuous, real-time data, via optical fibres, enabling users to assess processes and make decisions, without the need to interrupt operations.
Freeman Technology’s solutions also include the FT4 Powder Rheometer, a unique and comprehensive powder tester, which uses patented dynamic methodology, automated shear cells (in accordance with ASTM D7891) and a series of bulk property tests to quantify powder behaviour in terms of flow and processability.
This is complemented by the new Uniaxial Powder Tester, which provides an accurate and repeatable measure of the uniaxial unconfined yield strength (uUYS) of a powder to assess and rank flowability.
The company’s material characterisation solutions aim to optimise process performance, increase productivity and improve quality in a diverse range of sectors.
