Many processes rely on dry granulation using roller compaction. This study explored the role multivariate powder characterization can play to optimize the compaction by helping control granule properties that impact critical process parameters.
Selecting the correct device is crucial to successfully handling solids. It must deal with discrete pieces that have physical size, electrical properties, frictional differences and surface characteristics that can change with the environment.
A pharmaceutical operation relied on a dust collector to remove any dust generated when charging powder to a blender but the collector always was empty. Instead, combustible dust had accumulated in unseen locations.
To deal better with wet cakes, pastes and slurries, a plant should consider the possibility of altering bulk properties. Options include pre-forming of pastes, size enlargement of wet solids, shear-strength reduction, and partial drying of a cake surface.
Often, because of cost or lack of understanding of its importance, instrumentation gets left out of solids processes, causing ongoing problems. Four measurements usually are necessary to adequately control systems.
Powder characterization specialists Freeman Technology expands its global operations.
Time domain reflectometry (TDR) continuously measures the distance, level and volume of powders or solids in bins, tanks and silos.
Successful troubleshooting depends on understanding the effects of several key factors.
New Wide-Inlet Bulk Bag Filler from Flexicon allows rapid filling and passage of large, moist or dense chunks and semi-solid materials into open or duffle-top bulk bags.
Process engineering & chemical manufacturing: Macleod Pharmaceuticals put air quality first and installed a customized screw conveyer system to transfer blended materials.

The laboratory focuses on material characterization services for fine powders and solid materials and is managed by Dr. Torben Sick.
High-temperature bulk powder cooling system features water-cooled tubing
Mixing of powders into liquids should be relatively easy. You pour powder onto the liquid's surface and then mix it in. However, this mixing can be very troublesome in production. This paper examines the various factors involved with mixing powders into liquids and how to avoid potential problems.
Chemical manufacturing & process engineering: There are several factors or mechanisms that affect a chemical material's tendency to cake and that will, over time, produce the kind of cohesion and strength that will create serious discharge problems in bins, hoppers and silos.
Shaft Seals Solve Powder Problems
Vac-U-Max receivers are designed to convey free to non-free flowing powders for use in applications including loading tablet press machines, blenders, mix tanks and loss-in-weight feeder refill.
Lecture will look at the basics of powder behavior, focusing on powder flowability.

<p>Powders and solids can pose a wide variety of problems, from not ...
Designing equipment for solids is not an exact science. The flows of gases and liquids are generally better understood than those of solids. Most production problems arise from flaws in the design. This article presents questions you can ask yourself to ensure reliable flow in your silo.
Freeman Technology published an educational guide on powder characterization for industrial applications.
Booklet explains how and why powders behave the way they do and how this impacts powder processing.
DuPont Releases Teflon Powder Coating -- New coating is designed to be applied up to 80 mils.
