Granular material heap analyzer

Automated respose angle and cohesive index measurements
  • Principle

    Granuheap is an automated instrument able to measure quickly and precisely the repose angle of a granular material. In addition, this instrument provides the cohesive index related to the powder flowing properties.

    The instrument measures the powder heap shape with a customized image treatment algorithm. The measurement reproducibility is optimized with the use of an automated initialization method.

  • Key Benefits

    Measurement is simple, fast and intuitive.

    Delivered with intuitive software, both average and variance are easy to access and allows the comparison of results. Accessibility is password protected. All pictures and data are automatically collected and stored for post processing. Easy data transfer and automatic report generation.

    Closed system for safety requirements.

    Size compatible with hood or confined enclosure.

    Recorded standard operating procedures increase the repeatability of measurements.

    Through the simplicity of its design, Granuheap maximizes uptime. It is made out of modules, each of them can be swapped to avoid extensive diagnostics.

  • Description

    A rotating table allows the acquisition of the powder heap 2D projection at different viewing angles. This method optimizes the measurement precision and reduces considerably the test duration.
