Powder Flow Tester IQ/OQ/PQ Certification
Available from Brookfield AMETEK Inc
The Brookfield PFT Powder Flow Tester can now be certified for IQ/OQ/PQ (Installation Qualification/Operation Qualification/Performance Qualification) through a choice of programs offered by Brookfield Engineering.
Customers can choose to self-certify their PFT with a Certification Kit available from Brookfield. The kit includes a customized IQ/OQ/PQ document and a calibrated reference powder called BCR-116 Limestone. The IQ/OQ/PQ document comes with clear instructions on each step required to accomplish the installation, operation and performance protocol for the instrument. BCR-116 Limestone is certified by the European Commission in Belgium and comes with a Certificate of Calibration. Brookfield provides additional documentation with the BCR-116 Limestone which explains the step-by-step methodology for testing the instrument with the powder and the expected range of values for “unconfined failure strength” at each “consolidating stress”.
