Manual Powder Flow Tester (Model: EFT-01) including digital height guage
Complies with Ph. Eur. Specifications
Provides simple, repeatable flowability index of powders and granules Easy calculation of angle of repose Outflow openings- 10 mm, 15 mm and 25 mm as per Ph. Eur.Customized openings ¡V 5 mm, 10 mm, 15 mm etc. are also available It is composed of a cylinder with the interchangeable discs with holes of various diameters at the bottom. The
determination of fluidity is based on the capacity of the powder to fall freely by a hole in the disc. The carefully charged the hole by which a powder fall freely is small, larger if its flow. 60 grams are carefully charged in the cylindrical container until roughly 1 centimeter top. Tap the funnel slightly so that the powder is presented without compacting itself. After loading, to wait approximately 30 seconds; with the lever release the entry and observe if the powder runs. Start with a disc of 16 mm for unknown powders. If the test is positive, repeat the process with smaller discs until the test is negative. Machine is offered with various Openings. Provides simple, repeatable index of flow ability of powders Determines the repeatable flow ability index of powders over an arbitrary scale of 4-40 The powder flow tester allows for flow ability testing before set-up of tableting or capsule filling equipment and establishment of a reliable flow ability index for purchasing and quality assurance, thus avoiding high coefficient of variation in product uniformity. The performed test takes into account numerous parameters that affect powder flow ability, such as particle size and shape, ¡§fines¡¨ unit surface, actual and bulk density, porosity settling and electrostatic charge. Included with tester are a complete set of index flow disks.
