  • Cutting-Edge Powder Analysis
  • Versatile Applications
  • Improved Efficiency
  • Unique Measurement Technique
  • Cost-Effective Upgrade


In the ever-evolving world of powder processing, understanding the permeability of powders is absolutely critical across numerous industries. Whether it's pharmaceuticals, food production, or additive manufacturing, having a deep understanding of how powders behave under various packing conditions can dramatically impact product quality and production efficiency. Today, we're excited to introduce the GranuPack Permeability Unit, a cutting-edge breakthrough in powder permeability analysis.


A Game-Changer in Powder Permeability Measurement

The GranuPack Permeability Unit offers an innovative approach to measuring and utilizing powder permeability. Its key features and capabilities make it a true game-changer in the industry:

Precise Measurement: The GranuPack Permeability Unit employs a unique measurement technique that alternates the application of taps to the powder with air insufflation through the powder bed. This provides precise and controlled measurements of permeability, even at low consolidation levels and in static conditions.
Simultaneous Insights: This groundbreaking device offers simultaneous measurements of both permeability and density. This dual measurement capability provides a holistic view of powder behavior, even in low consolidation and static conditions, enhancing your ability to optimize your processes.
Versatile Applications: The GranuPack Permeability Unit finds applications in a wide range of industries, including understanding vertical flow inside a silo, ensuring accurate drug delivery with Dry Powder Inhalers (DPI), optimizing bag filling, enhancing the precision of die filling in manufacturing, and even supporting Additive Manufacturing.
Cost-Effective Retrofit: If you already own the GranuPack Classic, the GranuPack Permeability Unit is retrofit-compatible with it and can be included in the All-In Maintenance Plan. This cost-effective solution allows you to upgrade your existing equipment without a complete overhaul.


A Bright Future for Powder Characterization

In conclusion, the GranuPack Permeability marks a significant advancement in the realm of powder processing and measurement. Offering thorough insights into powder behavior across various packing conditions, including low consolidation and static scenarios, it equips industries to enhance process efficiency, elevate product quality, and stay ahead in the competitive landscape.

The importance of measuring powder permeability cannot be overstated; permeability is one of the main driving mechanisms of powder processability (flowability, packing ability, compressibility, etc.) This underscores the critical need for precise measurement, making the GranuPack Permeability an indispensable tool for businesses aiming to optimize their operations.

Don't overlook the value of this innovative instrument for powder permeability analysis.

Discover how the GranuPack Permeability can positively impact your operations and steer your business towards future success.
