ASTM WK41716

    New Test Method for Mechanically Tapped Density of Activated Carbon

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D28.02 | Committee D28 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method covers the determination of the mechanically tapped density of powdered and fine mesh activated carbon. For the purpose of this test method, powdered carbon is defined as having a mean particle diameter less than 45 m and fine mesh is defined as having a particle size predominately between 80 mesh and 325 mesh.

    Currently there is not a test method for measuring density on powdered and fine mesh carbon. The existing density method can not be used for these carbon types. Can be used by carbon manufacturers, users & contract labs.


    powdered carbon; fine mesh; mechanically tapped; density

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