Freeman Technology published, “Choosing a Powder Tester,” the second in a series of educational guides on powder characterization for industrial applications. Following “An Introduction to Powders,” the new guide provides straightforward guidance on the range of techniques available for powder characterization.

Authored by Tim Freeman, managing director of Freeman Technology, “Choosing a Powder Tester” reviews the strengths and limitations of a number of different methods, including those listed in the US and European pharmacopoeias for pharmaceutical powder testing.

The guide addresses questions facing powder processors looking to invest in powder testing instrumentation, including: What powder testing techniques are available? What should powder handlers look for in a testing method? What features make powders more or less suitable for industrial applications?

The guide also explores the relevance of the data generated by each technique and highlights the value of multifaceted testing to completely understand a powder’s performance in process and final application.
