Instruments for characterizing powder materials
Now part of the Micromeritics Instrument Corp., this company will be showcasing its material characterization solutions designed to optimize process performance, increase productivity and improve quality in a diverse range of sectors. The company’s portfolio (photo) includes the FT4 Powder Rheometer, a unique and comprehensive powder tester, which employs patented dynamic methodologies, automated shear cells (in accordance with ASTM D7891) and a series of bulk property tests to quantify powder behavior in terms of flow and processability. This is complemented by the Uniaxial Powder Tester, which provides accurate and repeatable measurements of the uniaxial unconfined yield strength (uUYS) of powders to assess and rank flowability. The company also offers in-line, realtime flow-measurement capabilities via an exclusive partnership with Lenterra Inc., a manufacturer of optical flow-sensor technology.
