Uniaxial Powder Tester

The Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT) from Freeman Technology is unique stand-alone uniaxial shear tester for simple, sensitive and cost-efficient powder characterisation.
Uniaxial Powder Tester

Uniaxial testing involves measuring  the force needed to break or fracture a column of consolidated powder. It  is probably  the most simple and direct method of measuring unconfined yield strength, a parameter related to cohesivity.
The Uniaxial Powder Tester uses a direct and reliable method for measuring the Unconfined Yield Strength and Flow Function of powders.
Measurements we got from Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT) are repeatable and reliable and provide a good alternative to traditional powder testing techniques.

Other benefits of the UPT are:

  • Direct UYS & FF measurements
  • Fast
  • Low Cost
  • Versatile
  • Easy to use
  • Intuitive, easy to interpret results
  • Robust

The UPT is available in either a manual or an advanced version. Both deliver the same data with high repeatability, but the advanced version also offers the advantage of increased levels of automation and reduced operator input.

Principles of uniaxial testing

A Consolidation Station is available for off-instrument consolidation when this needs to be carried out over an extended period, or under controlled environmental conditions.
