Material Flow Solutions supplies cost effective engineered solutions based on measurement of key material flow properties.  We provide in-house property testing combined with over 40 years of design experience to solve flow problems facing producers of fine powders and granules in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical, energy, mining, and consumer products industries.  Material Flow Solutions engineers offer scientifically-based solutions for your powder flow issues.  Our in-house testing laboratory measures the flow properties of your material so our solutions are robust - your product will flow through your system without hang-up, arching, , ratholing, blocking or other flow issues. 
If you have a Particle - we can Characterize it

With decades of experience in the powder and particle industry, we recognized the need for advancement in two very specific areas.

  • Segregation potential measurement and prediction of REAL mixtures – not simple bimodal mixtures, but mixtures of multiple components.
  • Powder Flowability measurement at product formulation time – at contact pressures low enough to correlate with REAL powder fill systems – and in sample quantities small enough to be affordable when high-cost preliminary production quantities are all that is available.
We met the need by developing the SPECTester® segregation quantifier and the SSSpinTester®  strength and density analyzer.

Major Services and Products:

In-House Testing Laboratory - Our extensive list of in-house testing capabilities for powders and granular and materials includes:
  • unconfined yield strength, friction angle, adhesion, bulk density and permeability measurement,
  • wear testing
  • moisture sorption analysis
  • thermal conductivity and heat capacity
  • segregation and blending analyses
  • attrition and size degradation
  • circularity and granularity analysis
  • zeta potential
  • particle size and shape analysis
  • particle toxicology studies
Product and Process Design Assistance - Our experienced engineers will help you get it right the first time.

SPECTester® Instrument:
Using the spectral reflectance value of the unique ingredients, as well as the whole mixtures, the SPECTester® quantifies the segregation potential of a 6-component material.  In under 30 minutes, the machine reports how much as well as why your material is segregating.  Fully automated, it provides data about: component concentrations, particle size differences, product uniformity, and up to 4 specific segregation mechanisms.

SSSpinTester® Instrument
Using the science of centrifugal force, the SSSpinTester® measures the unconfined yield strength and density of fine powders using a sample as small as 0.05 gram.  New technology extends the testing range down to 0.2 KPA compaction pressure, which allows direct measurement for arching potential – eliminating the need to rely on inherently inaccurate extrapolation for answers.
