    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the procedure for determining the consistency of castable refractory mixes by the flow table method.

    1.2 This test method applies to regular weight castable refractories, insulating castable refractories, and castable refractories that require heavy vibration for forming, which are described in Classification C 401. They also apply to such castables containing metal fibers.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound-units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard

    1.4 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.
