    Significance and Use

    3.1 This test method has been designed principally for granular carriers with LHC greater than 5.0 %. The incremental amount of suitable fluid added can be adjusted down as needed for carriers with LHC less than 5.0 %.

    3.2 This test method has been designed principally for granular carriers with a relatively rapid absorption of liquid. Some materials may absorb liquids more slowly than the described times in the method. If such is the case, the time limit of two (2) min. may be extended.

    3.3 This test method is applicable to granules in the range from 4 to 100 mesh (4.75 to 0.150 mm).

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is used to determine the liquid holding capacity (LHC) of granular carriers.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    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. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 5.
