Measuring Powder Flow – Nuts, Seeds & Pulses

The seeds of a tiresome production holdup were never too far away - until now.In products using nuts, seeds or pulses, many common manufacturing problems are attributed to powder or granule flow, including segregation, inaccurate filling of packaging, obstructions and stoppages. 

These in turn lead to machine downtime and defective end-products. Storage, handling, production, packing, distribution and end use can all be negatively affected by common powder/granule flow problems.
