volumeter density tester
from quality lab solutions
Quality Lab Solutions Volumeter is a typical bulk density tester being widely used in powder testing applications. It determines bulk density of free-flowing powders according to international standards.
Apparatus : Stand & Horizontal Vibration Free Base , Cylindrical / Cubical Density Cup , Bottom funnel, , Top Funnels, Baffle Box, Brush.
1) It consists of a top funnel fitted with a 1.00 mm sieve.
2) The Funnel is mounted over a baffle box containing four glass baffle plates over which the powder slides and bounces as it passes.
3) At the bottom of the baffle box is a funnel that collects the powder and allows it to pour into a cup of specified capacity mounted directly below it.
4) The cup may be
a) Cylindrical (25.00 ± 0.05 mL volume with an inside diameter of 30.00 ± 2.00 mm)
b) Cubical (16.39 ± 0.2 mL volume with inside diameter of 25.40 ± 0.076 mm).
5) It is used to test the bulk density of free-flowing powders such as metallic powders, refractory metals, compounds, paint, pigment, etc.
