‘Powder handling — a Guttridge speciality’ - .PDF file.

Powders can be considered as a type of granular material, but have a defining characteristic of consisting of relatively fine particles. This difference is a fundamental and important one that results in individual powders exhibiting far greater variability in bulk density than products containing larger granules. This is especially true of fine powders. Under consolidation, fine particles may pack closely together and become solid-like in terms of their flow properties. Conversely, a fluidised powder sample will contain significant amounts of air, have a low bulk density and flow like a liquid. As Guttridge explains in this article, the ability of powders to transition between these states complicates powder handling.
