Freeman Technology Demonstrates Latest FT4 Powder Rheometer Software at Interphex 2012

24 February 2012: Tewkesbury, UK: Visitors to the Freeman Technology Booth (#2136) at Interphex 2012 (1-3 May, New York, USA) can find out about the host of new features available in the latest version of the FT4 Powder Rheometer software.

The FT4 Powder Rheometer uses patented dynamic methodology, a fully automated shear cell and several bulk property tests, including density, compressibility and permeability to quantify powder properties in terms of flow and processability. The resulting information aids efficient plant design and supports the effective troubleshooting and optimisation of powder handling processes.

Powder Rheometer software version 5 delivers a clean, clear and intuitive graphical interface with enhanced display of real-time test information. Importantly it provides step-by step guidance to assist new users in selecting and running tests while still allowing experienced users the freedom to develop and run bespoke methodologies.

Freeman Technology operates on a global basis. Continued expansion of the organisation has included the formal establishment in January 2012 of Freeman Technology Inc and the expansion of the existing US team to include a National Sales Specialist. Applications and sales specialists from the Freeman Technology Inc. team will be available on the company's booth throughout Interphex 2012.
