Granular Media and Measurement Method: Powder Cell

Source: Anton Paar USA

The Powder Cell is a unique instrument for the study of dry granular flows, especially in the fluidized or near fluidized state.

Bulk solids and especially fluidized beds are a complicated and above all multivariate object of study. However, in regard to suspension rheology, fluidized beds and dense/ dilute suspensions share certain similarities, namely their classifications as two-phase flow systems and the complex interplay between particle-particle interaction, bulk viscosity of the nonsolid phase and the frictional and collisional parts thereof.
