TEST EQUIPMENT TO DETERMINE THE MASS STRENGTH OF PELLETED CARBON BLACK AS PER ASTM D1937

The test method ASTM D1937 “… 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.” ... “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.”*
