Bulk Density lbs/cu. ft. (Packed) - BDLB
This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com.
Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.
The measurement is done on the powdered material after settling (settling is accelerated in the test procedure). See ASTM C-29
Use the same procedure as the g/cc bulk density test, however multiply answer by 62.42 to get lbs/cubic foot.
VAL - Value (V)
Out Bound Links
DNLP - Density, loose packed (lbs/cu fut)
DENS - Density (Specific Gravity)
BDGC - Bulk Density g/cc (Packed)
