Standard Test Method for Sieve Analysis of Petroleum Coke
|Publication Date:||10 April 2000|
|ICS Code (Solid fuels):||75.160.10|
1.1 This test method details a procedure for performing particle size distribution analysis by dry sieve testing on green petroleum coke with a topsize of no more than 75 mm and calcined petroleum coke with a topsize of no more than 25 mm. Size fractions go down to and include 4.75 mm for green petroleum coke and 75 [mu]m for calcined petroleum coke.
Note 1-To convert units see Table 1 from Specification E11. For example, 75 mm is approximately equivalent to a nominal sieve opening of 3 in. and 25 mm to a nominal sieve opening of 1 in. Likewise, 4.75 mm can be converted to approximately 0.187 in. and 75 microns to 0.0029 in.
1.2 Although the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard, the sieve size is reported as U.S.A. standard test series in any units listed in Table 1 of Specification E11, or their commercial size equivalents.
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.
