The new Powder Flow Pro v1.2 is an updated version of this company’s automated software used to control its powder flow tester. The new version can provide quick and easy analysis of powder flow behavior in industrial processing equipment.

The software includes a new comparison feature that allows the operator to combine, display, and compare data from both standard and small-shear cell tests in a single graph. This ability reportedly enables customers to test and compare how powders will respond in small bins with low consolidating stress and in large bins with high consolidating stress.

Another new feature is the normalized flow function. As more product is added to the hopper, consolidation stress increases, raising the potential for stable bridges or “arching” to occur. This feature enables the technician to predict this behavior and modify the manufacturing process or hopper design to avoid the problem.
Powder Flow Pro V1.2 is available at no charge via download to customers who have purchased a Brookfield powder flow tester.
