Alat Uji Bulk Density Method C

Bulk density apparatus is testing equipment used to measure the bulk density property of powder, granules and other divided solids, especially used in reference to mineral components (soil, gravel, sand), chemical substances, (pharmaceutical), plastics like polyethylene (hdpe or mdpe) pvc, polystyrene etc, or foodstuff and any other masses of granular or particulate matter. Bulk density is defined as the mass of many particles of the material divided by the total volume they occupy. The total volume includes particle volume, inter-particle void volume and internal pore volume.

ASTM D1895 Method C

For coarse flakes, strands, chips and cut fibres that cannot be poured using test methods A and B Ray-Ran offer a measuring cylinder and plunger to method C of the ASTM test standard. Since these types of materials to be tested are very bulky when loosely poured and are usually compressed to lessen the bulk, a measure of their density under a small compression load is very useful. For this test a measuring cylinder of 1000 cm³ is supplied along with a scaled weight plunger with 1 mm graduations on the outside. Lead shot is used to increase the plunger weight to 2300g to compress the material under test.
