The Uniaxial Powder Tester by Freeman provides accurate and robust measurement of the uniaxial confined yield strength (uUYS) of a powder to assess and rank flowability. Uniaxial power testing involves the construction of a consolidated powder column. After removing its confining sleeve, the powder column is stressed vertically until fracture. The tensile force at the time of fracture gives the uUYS value. As supplement to this powder tester, an offline consolidation station is now available. It delivers additional testing capabilities, enabling powder samples to be stored for extended periods of time under precisely controlled conditions.
