REVOLUTION Powder Analyzer - A Powder Characterization Instrument

The REVOLUTION Powder Analyzer has a rotating drum that measures the flow properties of granular and fluidized materials. The operator fills the rotating drum with 125 cc of powder. 

Sample Drum Assembly

 A stepper motor turns two high precision silicone rollers which in return rotates the drum.  The operator can set the drum rotation rate (range 0.1 to 200 RPM) and prep time (range 0 to 999 seconds) of the analysis. A digital camera with the assistance of backlight illumination takes digital images of the powder during the rotation process. The images can be accumulated up to a rate of 30 frames per second.

Mechanical Representation of the Rotating Drum & Camera

 

From the images collected, the software measures the behavior of the powder due to the drum rotation and how this behavior changes over time. This data is then used to calculate various parameters representing the powder's quality and process ability. 

The user can perform the following three types of analysis:  Flowability, Granulation, Caking and Fluidization.
