Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

according to guideline
EN 15051-2 (Workplace exposure. Measurement of the dustiness of bulk materials - Rotating drum method)
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
other: rotating drum
Details on methods and data evaluation:
The sample has been divided in eight equal lots of about 35 ml using a rotary riffler, this rotary riffler is especially designed to minimize the loss of any fine dust. One of these divided lots has been used for determining the bulk density and the moisture content as well. The bulk density of the sample has been determined by accurately weighing a volume of 100 cm3 after gentle tapping at the side. This bulk density is used to convert the sample mass to the required volume of approx. 35 cm3 and the sample is further divided to the required 35 cm3. A few grams of the sample have been placed in the moisture analyser and have been heated to 105°C until a stable mass has been reached. The relative mass loss so-obtained has been quantified as moisture content as an independent triplicate.

One of the divided sub lots of about 35 cm3 is accurately weighed and placed in the rotating drum and the airborne dust particles are transferred by an air flow rate of 38 l min-1 to the filter assembly during 1 minute. The airborne dust released is drawn from the dust generation section, through the dust transfer section, into the special designed foam/filter assembly with successively 20 pores per inch foam, 80 pores per inch foam and a glass fibre backing filter. The complete procedure is repeated several times with fresh sample material and clean filters, each dustiness measurement is preceded by a blank run.
