How to measure the angle of repose for a non-symmetrical heap of material.
The Hosokawa Micron Powder Characteristics Tester PT-X makes use of state of the art features to identify the characteristics of a wide range of powdered materials. The instrument is capable of determining 11 different characteristics.
The Angle of Repose
One of those characteristics includes the angle of repose. The angle of repose is the result of the slope of a powder that has been collected on a platform.
Determining the Angle of Repose
While determining the angle of repose of a sample heap that is piled symmetrically is relatively easy, if it is piled asymmetrically, finding the angle of repose becomes more difficult. Luckily, the Micron Powder Characteristics Tester PT-X is capable of determining the angle of repose for both symmetrical and asymmetrical heaps. This video explains just how the Micron Powder Characteristics Tester PT-X manages to accomplish this feat.
