The FT4 powder tester delivers critical insight into powder behavior that users need in order to understand their powders, achieve compatibility between powder and plant, and enable process optimization – supporting the aims of QbD. The FT4 performs a range of methodologies, measuring shear, bulk and dynamic properties in a short time, using relatively small amounts of material. In addition, it is possible to define, in terms of easily measurable parameters, the characteristics of materials that will be optimal for a given piece of plant – a hopper or a tablet press, for example. Developing formulations that meet this specification ensures compatibility between the plant and powder, building quality into the manufacturing process from the outset, as advocated by QbD.
