Measuring Powder Flow – Pharmaceutical Powders

Powder that doesn't flow properly could give you a severe headache.
Powder flow analysis is extremely valuable in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as in many others.
 
Objective and repeatable testing combined with ranking of dry powder samples can provide significant opportunities and benefits. These include optimising batch and source selection in terms of cost and quality; the development of best mix formulations; optimising scaling up and process conditions; and maintaining product quality control.
