Freeman Technology published a new educational guide entitled, An Introduction to Powders. The booklet explains how and why powders behave the way they do, and how this impacts powder processing and characterization. It provides a foundation for those with little prior knowledge of powders and is a useful resource for those looking to expand their understanding of the factors relevant to product development and processing performance. The booklet is available to download free of charge via the Freeman Technology website.

Authored by Tim Freeman, managing director of Freeman Technology, the guide focuses on how the three components of a powder – the particles, surrounding air and any moisture present - interact to define powder behavior, and provides answers to the most frequently encountered powder processing issues throughout industry.

The guide explores the importance of powder flowability across a range of industrial processes. It explains the significance of operational conditions in the context of powder processing and highlights direct correlations between dynamic powder properties and process performance. The guide is the first in a series for those faced with powder processing or formulation challenges.
