Precise measurement of the (skeletal) density of bulk materials and other solids to determine the correct parameters for production or further processing still represents a challenge for personnel and technology.

At the same time, the degree of precision in determining this data often affects the profitability of the process, especially with small quantities and expensive materials, since too many rejects already entail high costs when processing starts. German company Siebtechnik Tema – the global umbrella brand of Siebtechnik GmbH and the former Tema Group – has addressed this problem by developing a gas pycnometer that fully automatically measures the volume and mass of a solid with very high precision. The innovative “Bulkinspector” provides the kind of safety in process preparation that is needed for trouble-free production and further processing, the supplier assures.
