The importance of Multi-Flow Testing?
Revolution Multi-Flow Test
Test Type: Instantaneous Dynamic
Powders can behave very differently depending on the amount of energy they are subjected to as they move through handling equipment. One powder may flow more evenly as it is subjected to more mechanical energy while another powder may become erratic. This behaviour can be studied using the Revolution Multi-Flow Test Method. In the multi-flow method, the sample drum speed is increased gradually over time and the sample powder’s behaviour is measured.
The Multi-Flow Analysis studies how a powder or granular material transitions from avalanching to continually flowing as it is subjected to faster speeds. By gradually increasing the rotation speed in the Multi-Flow Analysis, the user can evaluate the speed at which their powder is no longer avalanching in their process but flowing continuously. This data can be used to predict how powders will behave in high speed equipment.
