Moisture content can have a significant impact on powder properties such as flowability or compressibility. Measurement of mechanical properties at certain moisture contents therefore is essential in order to avoid problems during processing, storage and transport.
The ProUmid Powder Conditioner enables moisture equilibration of particulate systems such as powders, granules or pellets at controlled relative humidity.
Applications for Moisture Equilibration
- Pre-treatment of powders for analysis of bulk properties with a certain moisture content using equipment such as powder rheometer, flow tester, caking tester or ring shear cell.
- Processibility of powders with a certain moisture content in processes such as tabletting, roller compaction, filling and dosing.
- Water uptake of the powder can be calculated from the gas flow rate and the temperature and RH readings by a software algorithm.
