A new video answers basic questions about how to measure powders and examines the company’s powder flow tester (PFT). The video depicts basic flow behavior patterns known as “mass flow” and “core flow.” Typical problems that impede powder flow, such as arching and rathole formation, are reviewed. Reasons for use of shear cell testing to characterize flow are compared to simpler methods like flow cups and angle of repose.
