Brookfield Donates PFT Powder Flow Tester to the New Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center!

Brookfield Engineering has donated a PFT Powder Flow Tester to the new Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center.  

This new facility at KSU will be used to study and develop the understanding of bulk solids materials handling, in turn enhancing businesses that use these materials or manufacture the systems that convey, store and dispense them.  The 13,000 sq. ft. center features five research laboratories as well as lecture rooms for hands-on training, education and conferences.  This university-level research center is the only one of its kind in North America.

Brookfield’s PFT Powder Flow Tester delivers affordable testing for powder flow behavior in gravity discharge from a bin.  The PFT provides quick and easy analysis of design parameters for industrial processing equipment.  It’s ideal for manufacturers who process powders daily and want to minimize or eliminate the downtime and expense that occur when hoppers fail to discharge.  Customers can use the PFT to perform QC checks on incoming materials, quickly characterize new formulations for flowability and adjust composition to match the flow behavior of established products.

The donation includes the newest version of Powder Flow Pro Software and all accessories for handling powder samples. Brookfield will also provide the Small Volume Shear Cell (requiring only 43cc of powder) for formulators who test expensive powders in limited quantities or materials which are difficult or messy to handle.
