Flow Testing Software helps save time and improve quality.
Press Release Summary:
April 30, 2014 - Powder Flow Pro Software v1.3 (build 23) integrates Quick 5-Point Flow Function Test, which can be accomplished in ~16 min. This helps accelerate QA/QC checks on production powder batches. Specifically, 5-Point Test provides operator with 5 predefined consolidation stress measurements that are then used to provide accurate representation of powder flow characteristics. This lets manufacturers predict potential flow problems before they occur and make necessary adjustments.

The New Quick 5-Point Flow Function Test Saves Time and Improves Quality
Press release date: April 25, 2014
Middleboro, MA – Brookfield is pleased to announce that the Quick 5-Point Flow Function Test is now integrated into Powder Flow Pro Software, version 1.3 (build 23). This quick new test can be accomplished in about 16 minutes as compared to the Standard 5-Point Flow Function Test which takes about 25 minutes to complete. This considerable reduction in time allows for more rapid QA/QC checks on production powder batches.
The predecessor to this test was the Quick Standard 2-Point Flow Function Test which only provided data for the lowest and highest consolidated stress values.
The 5-Point Test provides the operator with five predefined consolidation stress measurements. These five points of data are then used to provide a more accurate representation of the powder’s flow characteristics, through a hopper or feeder system. This allows manufacturers to predict potential flow problems before they occur and make necessary adjustments to improve production and product quality.
Free sample testing is available from Brookfield and authorized dealers to illustrate the comparative data from the Quick Test and the Standard Flow Function Test.
