1.1 This test method covers the determination of the flow rate of metal powders and is suitable only for those powders that will flow unaided through the specified apparatus.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard (except for the flowmeter funnel, which is fabricated in inch-pound units). The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
