Results and discussion

Particle size distribution at different passages
Size:
>= 0.053 - <= 0.297 mm
Remarks on result:
other: Particle size distribution was determined to be in the range >= 0.053 - <= 0.297 mm.
Remarks:
Particle size distribution determined by sieving through No. 50, No. 100, No. 200 and No. 270 US standard sieves (see under overall remarks).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The particle size of the test item is in the range between 0.053 mm and 0.297 mm.
Executive summary:

In the Technical Manual, the particle size distribution of the test item determined by sieving is reported: 98% at minimum passed through a No. 50 US standard sieve, 96% through a No. 100 US standard sieve, 25 -90% through a No. 200 US standard sieve, and 0 -15% through a No. 270 US standard sieve. Based on these information, it can be concluded that the test item particle size is in the range between 0.297 mm (corresponding to a No. 50 US standard sieve) and 0.053 mm (corresponding to a No. 270 US standard sieve).
