Powders are used in many industries today and the bulk properties of a powder are dependent upon the preparation, treatment, and storage of a sample. Since small disturbances of bulk powders result in a changed bulk density, it is often very difficult to measure with good reproducibility.
The new PTG-NIR by Pharma Test is a Powder Analysis System and consists of a PTG-S5 powder characterization instrument and a connected TIDAS L diode-array NIR spectrometer by J&M. The powder characterization instrument measures the flow behavior of powders to reduce process costs and maintain batch-to-batch quality. The instrument determines the powder flow time and measures the cone angle (angle of repose) of the collected powder mound. While measuring the weight, the powder cone density, the powder cone volume as well as the EP „flowability“ results are calculated.
