1.1 This test method covers a procedure for measuring the flow characteristics of a given volume of powder.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard (except for the Hall Flowmeter Funnel, which is produced in inch-pound units). The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
