    Significance and Use

    3.1 The values determined in this test, when evaluated in terms of pertinent experience with other cokes, may be used as indications of the extent to which a given coke will break in conventional transit and handling beyond the point of sampling.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the application of two procedures for the determination of the property of coke of withstanding breakage when dropped under specified test conditions.

    1.2 Procedure A, used when the coke sample contains 50 % or less of 100 mm (4 in.) after removal of coke smaller than 50 mm (2 in.). Procedure A appears in Sections 6 – 9.

    1.3 Procedure B, used when the coke sample contains more than 50 % 100 mm (4 in.) after removal of coke smaller than 50 mm (2 in.). Procedure B appears in Sections 10 – 13.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
