Freeman Technology investigates the flow properties of cement

Published by
World Cement,

Freeman Technology has launched a new application note on ‘Optimising the Flow Properties of Cement Powders by Surface Treatment.’

Cement is typically stored in large hoppers, before being dispensed and conveyed into bags or containers for use in the construction industry. Surface treatment offers the opportunity to alter the flow properties of a powder, thereby optimising process performance. Controlling the flow properties of cement, without significantly changing its particle size, ensures consistent delivery.


The study uses the FT4 Powder Rheometer to ensure that flow properties have been optimised without compromising other aspects of performance.
