ASTM WK21239

    Revision of D7430 - 08 Standard Practice for Mechanical Sampling of Coal

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7430 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D05.23 | Committee D05 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    ASTM D 7430 - Part A states that a cutter opening should be at least 2.5 to 3 times the nominal top size of the coal. ISO 13909 states 3 times top size. The TG agreed that it was important to review the science and engineering principles to determine the correct cutter opening and specify it more clearly in the standard.
