ASTM WK39878

    New Test Method for Determination of Bulk Density for Specific Size Fractions of Calcined Petroleum Coke using a Trans Axial Pressure Pycnometer

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.05 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 The test method covers the determination of bulk density for a specific size fraction of calcined petroleum coke using an automated pycnometer that compacts coke by applying trans axial pressure under a controlled force.

    Bulk density is an important calcined petroleum coke property for the aluminum industry.


    Bulk Density; trans axial pressure; pycnometer; calcined petroleum coke; vibrated bulk density (VBD); tapped bulk density (TBD); natural fraction;

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
