Standard Test Method for Centrifuge Kerosine Equivalent
|Publication Date:||1 December 2010|
This test method determines the centrifuge kerosine equivalent (CKE) of aggregate used in bituminous mixtures.
Units of Measure:
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. An exception is made in the values used for mass because this standard was originally developed using even values of grams, and use of ounces as a standard would make those measures cumbersome.
Regarding sieves, per ASTM Specification E11 Section 1.2, "the values stated in SI units shall be considered standard for the dimensions of the wire cloth openings and the diameter of the wires used in the wire cloth. The values stated in inchpound units shall be considered standard with regard to the sieve frames." When sieve mesh sizes are referenced, the alternate inch-pound designations are provided for information purposes and enclosed in parentheses.
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. For specific hazard statements, see 7.1.
