Powder Flow Testing

The Schulze range of Ring Shear Testers is designed to provide reliable and accurate Powder Flowability data. All tests are based on the Jenike principles for flow which are the only non empirical approach. A complete range of testers is available for both small volume and fine powers to large scale coarser materials.

PFT Powder Flow Tester

The PFT Powder Flow Tester delivers quick and easy analysis of powder flow behaviour in industrial processing equipment. It is ideal for manufacturers who process powders daily and want to minimise or eliminate downtime and expense that can occur when hoppers discharge erratically or fail to discharge altogether. The following parameters may be determined. Bulk Density (Fill and Final) Wall Friction Flow Index Arching Dimensions Rat-hole Diameter Hopper Half Angle Gravity Chute Angle Compressibility (Carr) Index Compressibility (Hausner) Ratio FEATURES AND BENEFITS Compact design – easily fits on a workbench Easy to use and intuitive Powder Flow Pro software included…

Ring Shear Tester-XS

The Ring Shear Tester RST-XS.s is compact and bench-mounted. It is designed for applications with powders of up to particle size 1.5 mm. This RST is particularly well-suited for small sample volumes. The RST-XS is an easy-to-operate, computer-controlled tester for the precise determination of the flow properties of fine-grained powders and bulk solids. It is appropriate for those industries and research institutions which deal with either fine-grained materials or have only limited amounts of powders for testing (e.g. pharmaceutical, food, chemical industries and others). The tester measures the flowability and other physical quantities like the internal friction of a powder,…

Ring Shear Tester – 01.PC

The Ring Shear Tester RST-01.pc is floor mounted and designed for handling powders with large sample sizes. This includes coal, cereals, soil and other coarse materials. The RST-01.pc is suitable for all powders and bulk solids up to a particle size of 5-10 mm. It performs the tests automatically and is controlled by a PC and control software RST-CONTROL 95.
