Powder Flowability Test

Method Description

Flowability Analysis according to USP <1174> involves evaluating the powder flow characteristics using a Powder Flow Tester. This method assesses the ability of a powder to flow freely through specific apertures under controlled conditions. The Powder Flow Tester measures parameters such as cohesion, compressibility, and flow function to determine the powder's flowability. This analysis is crucial in various industries, including pharmaceuticals and food manufacturing, ensuring efficient processing, consistent product quality, and compliance with regulatory standards outlined by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). The results guide formulation and manufacturing processes to enhance the handling and processing of powders.
