Brookfield Engineering recently announced it has donated a PFT powder flow tester to the new Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center. This new facility will reportedly be used to study and develop the understanding of bulk solids materials handling, in turn enhancing businesses that use these materials or manufacture the systems that convey, store, and dispense them. The 13,000-sq-ft center features five research laboratories, as well as lecture rooms for hands-on training, education and conferences. This university-level research center is reportedly the only one of its kind in North America.
The donation includes the newest version of Powder Flow Pro software and all accessories for handling powder samples. Brookfield will also provide the Small Volume Shear Cell for formulators that test expensive powders in limited quantities or materials that are difficult or messy to handle.
