ASTM C1039 – Standard Test Methods for Apparent Porosity, Apparent Specific Gravity, and Bulk Density of Graphite Electrodes
Significance and Use
3.1 The results of these test methods can be used as a quality control or quality assurance check of electrodes either during their manufacture or at the user’s location. The results of these methods tend to be operator-sensitive; therefore, care must be taken in the execution of the test in order to obtain reproducible results.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of apparent porosity, apparent specific gravity, and bulk density of cores taken from graphite electrodes manufactured for use in electric arc furnaces. (See also C559 and C838.)
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
