Freeman Technology has launched the first in a new range of "plug and play" accessories that will fully automate powder flow testing on the company's FT4 powder rheometer. The new automated aeration accessory allows the flow properties of powders to be measured at different levels of aeration to determine how flowability depends on the amount of entrained air. Its full automation eliminates the need for operator intervention, thus removing the major source of measurement variation and error. This advance has been made possible by Freeman's recent development of a universal control card that provides a seamless interface between the instrument, the accessory and the user.
