Annular, ring or torsional shear testers are commonly used in bulk solids handling research for the purpose of
powder characterisation or equipment design. This paper reports from a DEFRA sponsored project which aims
to develop an industrial powder flow-ability tester, (based on the annular shear tester) that is economic to buy
and quick and easy to use in trained but unskilled hands.
This paper compares the wall failure loci measured with an annular shear cell with measurements obtained using
the accepted standard wall friction tester, the Jenike shear cell. These wall failure loci have been measured for
several bulk solids which range from fine cohesive powders to free-flowing granular materials, on a stainless
steel 304 2B wall surface.
