Powder characterization company Freeman Technology will present new research on the impact of humidity on powders at Powtech 2013 April 23-25 in Nurnberg, Germany.

The presentation, entitled “The Influence of Ambient Moisture on Powder Flow,” will be the first opportunity to learn about the company’s latest study highlighting how the FT4 Powder Rheometer can be used to quantify the impact of humidity in a process relevant way.

While it is recognized that moisture impacts powder behavior, the effects can be challenging to quantify in ways that directly relate to performance, either in a process or in the end-use application. Previous research by Freeman Technology has already demonstrated the role of the FT4 Powder Rheometer in tackling this issue.

The latest data from the study of powders common in the food and pharmaceutical industries provide further illustration of the diverse effects that moisture can induce and the value of multifaceted powder characterization within this context, according to Freeman.

Experts from Freeman Technology will be on hand throughout Powtech to discuss any aspect of powder characterization.
