  • Apparent Bulk Density Apparatus leaflet – Ray-Ran


Bulk density apparatus is testing equipment used to measure the bulk density property of powder, granules and other “divided” solids, especially used in reference to mineral components (soil, gravel, sand), chemical substances, (pharmaceutical), plastics like polyethylene (hdpe or mdpe) pvc, polystyrene etc, or foodstuff and any other masses of granular or particulate matter. The Method A tester is primarily used to measure the apparent density of fine granules that can be poured readily through a “V” shaped funnel, the material under test is allowed to flow into a cylindrical cup with a known volume of 100cm³.

Tests that can be conducted are:

  • Apparent Density
  • Bulk Factor
  • Pourability

Specifications:

  • V shaped funnel
  • Measuring cup 100cm3
  • Stand with funnel shut off
  • Special funnels and cups are available to meet your requirements

Weight & Dimensions: ASTM D1895 A

Net Weight (kg)4
Width (cm)18
Depth (cm)23
Height (cm)25

Available Models

Net Weight (kg)9
Width (cm)24
Depth (cm)33
Height (cm)52

The larger of the ASTM family Method B is primarily used to measure the apparent density of larger coarse granular materials, dice or pellets that cannot be poured readily through the method A funnel. The material under test is allowed to flow into a cylindrical cup with a known volume of 400cm³.

Tests that can be conducted are:

  • Apparent Density
  • Bulk Factor
  • Pourability

Specifications:

  • V shaped funnel
  • Measuring cup 400cm3
  • Stand with funnel shut off
  • Conforms to ASTM D1895 method B
Net Weight (kg)4
Width (cm)10
Depth (cm)10
Height (cm)30 (max)

For course flakes, strands, chips and cut fibres that cannot be poured using test methods A and B Ray-Ran offer a measuring cylinder and plunger to method C of the ASTM test standard. Since these types of materials to be tested are very bulky when loosely poured and are usually compressed to lessen the bulk, a measure of their density under a small compression load is very useful. For this test a measuring cylinder of 1000 cm³ is supplied along with a scaled weight plunger with 1mm graduations on the outside. Lead shot is used to increase the plunger weight to 2300g to compress the material under test.

Tests that can be conducted are:

  • Apparent Density

Specifications:

  • Measuring funnel
  • Weight plunger
  • Lead shot
  • Conforms to ASTM D1895 method C

Primarily used to measure the apparent density of moulding material that can be poured readily through a specified funnel, the material under test is allowed to flow into a cylindrical cup with a known volume of 100cm³.

Tests that can be conducted are:

  • Apparent Density
  • Bulk Factor
  • Pourability

Specifications:

  • Measuring cup 100 cm3
  • Stand with funnel shut off
  • Conforms to ISO R60 specification
