Flow Properties of Powder and Particle Characterization
Food, feed and pharmaceutical products very often consist of powder and/or added dry ingredients, e.g., enzymes, vitamins, colours, flavours, antioxidants and active medicinal compounds.

For most companies, it is very challenging to operationalize knowledge of particle properties, e.g., analytical results, directly to process optimization. The behaviour of particles will depend on numerous parameters such as particle size distribution, particle shape, chemical composition, moisture and temperature.

In order to optimize the flow ability of powder, and to design powder handling equipment such as silos, feeders and flow promoting devices, it is necessary to know and characterize the mechanical properties – the so-called flow properties of the particles. This 1-day conference will give you the opportunity to learn more about characterization of powder and particles, and about how the results can improve process development.

The themes cover
- Powder flow properties characterized by both ring shear testing and powder rheology
- Application of powder flow property measurements for the development and optimization of products
- How to obtain representative samples for analysis.
