Freeman Technology has announced that it has entered into an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement with Lenterra, a company that specialises in the provision of optical technology for inline real-time flow measurement. Lenterra’s process analytical technology complements Freeman Technology’s existing solutions for industrial powder testing, providing extended opportunities for process monitoring and control.
“Moving into inline monitoring of both batch and continuous processes is a logical step for us as we strengthen and diversify our offering to meet industrial requirements,” said Tim Freeman, Managing Director of Freeman Technology. “Lenterra’s focus on Process Analytical Technology for the powder processing industries and the strength of their engineering expertise makes them an excellent partner. Understanding the evolution of granules during a wet granulation process or blend homogeneity during mixing, in real time offers new opportunities for process control and optimisation. We’re delighted to be able to offer those benefits to our customers through the introduction of this new technology.”
“Freeman Technology’s knowledge of how to test powders so as to optimise processing performance is second to none,” said Dr Valery Sheverev, President and CEO at Lenterra “and the FT4 Powder Rheometer is a powerful tool for giving a thorough understanding of powder properties. With Lenterra’s flow measurement technology we can employ similar measurements inline in order to continuously monitor material properties in process. The potential benefits include improved compliance, enhanced quality assurance, reduced cycle times and costs, faster scale up and improved equipment utilisation. These can add up to a considerable economic gain.”
