Tim Freeman, managing director of Freeman Technology, will deliver the keynote lecture at Powder Technology in Pharma, Food, Chemistry and Metallurgy, a new course at the University of Lund, Sweden.

freeman0906The course will be offered Oct. 23-25.The course will help attendees to develop a better understanding of powder behavior, the tools available for powder characterization and modern processing technology. It is suitable for those working in academia or industry, in R&D or production.

Freeman’s lecture will look at the basics of powder behavior, focusing on powder flowability, which has a defining influence on the efficiency of many processes. He will outline the mechanisms that define particle interactions and go on to examine the properties of powders that need to be measured to develop a better understanding of in-process performance.  On the first day, Freeman will provide introductory knowledge of powders needed to develop more efficient formulations and effective process optimization strategies.

On days two and three the course will focus on the many unit operations used to process powders and tailor their properties including compaction and sintering, milling, fluidization, granulation and conveying.  The course will also include an optional day four where attendees can take part in a demo of optical and scanning electron microscopy, bringing their own samples for analysis.
