Powder Cell brochure - .PDF file.

Anton Paar’s Powder Cell from Anton Paar, part of the MCR rheometer series, brings the full array of traditional rheological methods to the field of powder. Now it is possible to simulate and determine powder flow under different conditions. 

The Powder Cell makes it possible to simulate and determine powder flow under different conditions. This is important in the field of quality control, but also to investigate dry granular flow, especially in the fluidised or near-fluidised state.

According to the company, an MCR rheometer plus Powder Cell is the perfect combination for true rheological investigations of powders in quality control as well as research and development. 

Powder flow is influenced by a wide range of factors such as particle size and shape, chemical structure, humidity, temperature, packaging behavior, static charge, surface morphology, etc. An MCR rheometer combined with the Powder Cell can simulate and determine powder flow under different conditions and therefore ensures efficient quality control and smooth powder processing. 

Cohesion strength can easily and exactly be determined with an MCR rheometer and the Powder Cell. As well as quality control, it is also a suitable instrument for the study of dry granular flows, especially in the fluidised or near-fluidised state.

Key product features

  • Simulates and determines powder flow under different conditions.
  • An automatic measurement program ensures results within two minutes and therefore high throughput.
  • Easy to use: it provides automatically performed calibration and live visualisation of the measurements
  • Enables rotational as well as oscillatory tests in any state of consolidation or fluidisation and any state in between. 
  • The Mass Flow Controller gathers new data between zero-load and the fluidised state. 
  • Operating costs are low and the unique dust protection hood safeguards the operator and the instrument from fine and potentially hazardous powder.
