Granular material flowmeter
Semi-automated measurement of powder flow rates through apertures
Granuflow is a semi-automated instrument to measure quickly and precisely the mass flow of granular material passing through holes of various diameters.
Flow rates can be analysed versus the holes diameters in agreement with Beverloo’s law to determine the minimal diameter of flow for a granular material.
Granuflow combines a stainless steel cell of 250ml capacity and a rotating plate with 10 different holes with diameters from 4 to 34 mm. Holes diameters are manually increased while the measurement takes place.
The measurement of mass flow through the various holes doesn’t require any disassembling and cleaning of the instrument.
The configuration of the Granuflow can be adapted to meet a wide range of cell capacities (from milliliters to liters).
Through the simplicity of its design, the Granuflow maximizes uptime. It is made out of modules, each of them can be swapped to avoid extensive diagnostics.
