Granutools, based in Awans, Belgium, has unveiled new software to pair with the GranuFlow powder and granular material flowmeter for enhanced powder analysis.

The instrument fits the flowing curve to a theoretical model, and from this, it derives two critical indexes that encapsulate the unique interplay of flowability and cohesiveness of the powder. These indexes are then integrated into a comprehensive diagram, providing a holistic view of the powder’s characteristics.

Granutool’s new software takes users through each step via a streamlined interface, enabling precise measurements and reproducible results.
