Standard Guide for Part-Stream Sampling of Coal
|Publication Date:||10 November 2001|
|ICS Code (Coals):||73.040|
This guide covers general principles for obtaining a gross sample of coal by taking increments from part of a stream of coal rather than from the entire stream to be sampled. The usefulness of results from this guide will vary greatly depending on such factors as top size of the coal, size consistency of the coal, variability of the coal, and such logistical factors as the flow rate of the coal in process and physical accessibility of the sampling station.
This guide should be used only when it is not possible to use a method of sampling that produces a probability sample.
Sample preparation procedures involving crushing are contained in Method D 2013.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
