Brookfield Engineering Offers Free Powder Sample Testing

May 28, 2014
Sample testing evaluates powder behavior and flowability.

Brookfield Engineering Laboratories offers free powder sample testing using Brookfield’s PFT Powder Flow Tester to characterize a powder’s behavior and flowability. The testing determines flow function, wall friction, arching diameter and bulk density as a function of consolidation stresses. Shear cell methodology is the technical approach used to test all customer samples in accordance with ASTM D6128, D6682 and D6773. Rathole diameter and internal friction angle can also be provided at the customer’s request.

The testing is typically completed in less than a week and the results are emailed to the customer. These reports provide the customer with actual data that can be used to improve their process by characterizing powders with flow aids, and serve as a reference for future powder formulations.

The first three powder sample tests are free with a nominal charge for additional sample testing. Arrangements can also be made for customers to use the PFT at their facilities for a one-week trial period. Sample testing can be completed in any of Brookfield’s powder testing labs, located in Boston Massachusetts; Harlow, Essex, England; Lorch, Germany; Guangzhou, China; and Mumbai, India.
