Reference
Endpoint:
particle size distribution (granulometry)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
20 February, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Performed with conventional steel sieves. Sieveing machine, Retsch AS 200 control. steel sieves 200mm diameter.
Procedure: clean and dry sieves together with a closed pan were weighed and stacked with the finest sieves at bottom. 30g homogenised samples are transferred to the top sieve. The stacked sieves are shaken in the appartatus at 1.5mm amplitude for 3 minutes. The sieves and the pan are reweighed and the granulate weight-% distribution calculated
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
sieving
Type of particle tested:
other:
Type of distribution:
mass based distribution

Additional information

Particle size distribution of DNAN was investigated (Chemring Nobel AS, 03/17, 2017). The test has been performed with conventional steel sieves.

The granulometry of DNAN was found to be 155 µm in average and no significant part smaller than 45 µm.
