Standard Test Method for Carbon Black, Pelleted—Mass Strength

Significance and Use

Mass strength gives an indication of the flowability in bulk handling. It is affected by pellet properties such as hardness, size, shape, and especially fines content. Due to the influence of other variables, the user and the producer must determine an acceptable mass strength level.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the mass strength of pelleted carbon black. It is designed to determine the force required to pack a cylindrical column with pelleted carbon black. The results of this test are believed to relate to the ability of the carbon black to flow in bulk handling systems.

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

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.
