Sieve size is identified by its standard designation in Specification E Assign specification limits with extreme care in consideration of available aggregate types and their performance history in specific end uses.
Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. 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. This test is a measure of degradation of mineral aggregates f standard gradings resulting from a combination of actions including abrasion or attrition, impact, and grinding in a rotating steel drum containing a specified number of steel spheres, the number depending upon the grading of the test sample.
The contents then roll within the from with an abrading and grinding action until the shield plate picks up the sample and the steel spheres, and the cycle is repeated. The Alternative designation given in parentheses is for information only and does not represent a different standard sieve size.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The results do not automatically permit valid comparisons to be made between sources distinctly different in origin, composition, or structure.
As the drum rotates, a shelf plate picks up the sample of the steel spheres, carrying them around until they are dropped to the opposite side of the drum, creating an impact-crushing effect.
