MaTec Materials Technologies designs instruments to perform standard test of the mechanical properties of powders and pellets.
Any powder, when moved, is subjected to attrition phenomena, leading to undesirable fines formation. Measuring attrition resistance is therefore essential, in particular for powders used as catalysts in fluidized bed and slurry reactors.
Crush strength measures the resistance of a solid to compression, a property of paramount importance not only for industrial catalysts, but also for ceramics, pharmaceutical tablets and many other solid materials.
Abrasion in solid materials occurs because of the rubbing of solid pieces against each other (or any other mechanical component), leading to the formation of finer dust and loss of precious material or valuable features. Therefore, abrasion resistance is a property of the utmost importance for industrial catalysts.
DENSI-TAP is designed to measure the bulk density of both powders and formed particles.
The determination of the relationship between powder bulk density and applied pressure provides relevant information for the optimization of tableted materials such as carbons, ceramics, and catalysts.
