Flowability of Detergent Powder under Dry and Humid Conditions

Detergent powder exposed to hot and humid conditions tends to form clumps which makes dosing difficult and reduces cleaning performance. The powder shear cell can assist you when checking new formulations.

When detergent powder is exposed to hot and humid climate conditions its flowability can be reduced and its caking or clumping behavior increased. This can have a negative effect when dosing or on its cleaning performance since clumped powder tends to dissolve worse than its loose counterpart. In particular when residual detergent keeps present in form of white clumps after the washing, the caking of the powder was severe. Therefore, having a measurement method available to study caking and clumping of the detergent powder prior to dissolving in washing water is very valuable for evaluating different formulations.
