Abstract

A low cost powder flowability tester for industry has been developed at The Wolfson Centre in collaboration with Brookfield Viscometers and food manufacturers, Cadbury, Kerry Ingredients, GSK and United Biscuits. Anticipated uses of the tester are primarily for quality control and new product development, but it can also be used for silo design. This paper highlights some decision taken over the geometry of the cells the test algorithm and the presentation of the geometry of the cells the test algorithm and the presentation of the measured flow properties.
