Powder and Granulate Flowability Tester


Powder and granulate tester for flowability characterization

The PF1 powder flow tester has been specifically designed for standardized testing in full compliance with Pharmacopeia requirements as laid down in USP <1174> and Ph. Eur. 2.9.36. Its optimized design allows for different, yet easily repeatable test conditions and methods for powder flow characterization. Change-over between configurations is simple with quick-change components that do not require any additional tools.


  • Three different standardized flowability tests for characterization of powders and granulates
  • Robust stand with two easily height-adjustable arms (quick-lock without any tools)
  • Integrated timer starts & stops automatically when opening / closing the shutter
  • Optimized for fast and trouble-free cleaning
  • Flow through an orifice with funnel or cylinder and angle of repose type tests
  • Allows to flexibly use either a stirrer or a filling funnel without having to remove any components
  • Simplified “Mass per Time” measuring with laboratory balance
  • Pharmacopeia: USP <1174>, EP 2.9.36
  • Test methods
    • Flow through an orifice, with funnel
    • Flow through an orifice, with cylinder
    • Angle of repose
  • QC and R&D in pharmaceutical industry
