3P attend Powder Characterisation Conference (June 2017)


Freeman Technology, the powder characterisation specialists, and Surface Measurement Systems, hosted a ‘Powder Characterisation Workshop’ on the 18th of May 2017 at Imperial College London.

The event introduced delegates to powder rheology and surface energy measurements. The workshop included presentations by Jamie Clayton, Operations Director at Freeman Technology, who provided an introduction to understanding powder flow and powder behaviour, and Dr Daryl Williams, Founder of Surface Measurement Systems, discussed the surface energy of powders and powder performance.

Real world experiences were also presented by two of 3P's clients Jordan Cheyne, Manager - Materials Characterisation Team at Pfizer Sandwich and Iain Davidson, Manager - Physical Properties at Vectura.

All in all a fascinating day for anyone interested in powder and its dynamic physical properties.
