UPT – novel cost-effective powder testing

Freeman Technology, global leader in powder testing technologies, have introduced the Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT). This is the world’s first stand-alone uniaxial tester for simple, sensitive and cost-efficient powder characterisation. This new tester delivers automated, highly repeatable measurement and provides a cost effective alternative to traditional powder testing techniques.

Uniaxial testing involves the construction of a consolidated powder column, which is then fractured through the application of a vertical stress to directly measure Unconfined Yield Strength and Flow Function of powders.

The UPT is available in either manual or advanced version. Read more…
