Segregation, or separation, of granular powder materials is one of the main causes of process failure with systems that handle powder materials. Using state-of-the-art spectroscopic technology, the innovative SPECTester is capable of analyzing a sample comprised of up to six individual components, such as: particle size, sifting, fluidization, angle of repose, chemical component and air entrainment.

SPECTester Material Segregation Tester uses state-of-the-art spectroscopic technology and is capable of analyzing a sample comprised of up to six individual components and provides a simple report indicating why and how much the sample material is segregating. Fully automated, the instrument provides data about component concentrations, particle size differences, and product uniformity.
The SPECTester can be used in R&D environments to research a materials properties prior to going into production as well as in production plants for real-time quality control.
