Technikum: The Powder Center

Everything starts with a material test report

When characterizing powders, experience plays a decisive role – and we have been doing it longer than most, developing our first test protocol back in 1928.

Since that first test – which involved sieving graphite – we have amassed over 15,000 powder samples in our database and set benchmarks for the testing of dry powders. Indeed, for some industries, our test protocols have become the standard starting point for classifying and characterizing dry powders. 

“Setting the standard for analyzing dry powders”

Our experts not only perform standard testing programs; they are also constantly expanding our testing capabilities, characterizing powders for our clients and for our own engineering projects. 

Specific testing includes:
Flow properties
Fluidization properties
Wear and attrition
Setting times of gypsum
Strength testing
Climate chamber testing
Grindability
Shear tests

Thorough testing delivers the best solutions

We are doing powder testing and characterization for our own projects and as a consulting for our clients.

We are not only analyzing the powder properties. As part of an engineering company, it is always our focus to create a feasible and efficient solution for our clients. 

Our own workshop allows us as well to build prototypes of small or large scale designs to verify proposed solutions.
