    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers an apparatus and procedure for determining a range of bulk densities of powders and other bulk solids as a function of compaction pressure.

    1.2 This test method should be performed in the laboratory under controlled conditions of temperature and humidity.

    1.3 This test method is similar to those of B 212-89(1995) Test Method for Apparent Density of Free-Flowing Metal Powders, D 29-86(1994) Test Methods for Sampling and Testing Lac Resins, D 2854-89(1993) Test Method for Apparent Density of Activated Carbon.

    1.4 The values stated are in SI Units and are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.5 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.
