The Volution Solves Flowability Problems

The Volution Powder Flow Tester (VFT) measures the flow properties and bulk characteristics of powders and bulk solids. The system uses an annular shear cell to measure a powder’s response to consolidating pressure using the yield locus technique. This allows the system to measure the cohesion and angle of internal friction of the material as well as its unconfined yield strength. The system also measures wall friction and compressibilty. Flow functions can be measured by testing the materials at different pressures.
