AS ISO 12742:2021 pdf download.Copper, lead and zinc sulfide concentrates — Determination of transportable moisture limits — Flow-table method
1  Scope
This document specifies a flow-table method for the determination of the transportable moisture limit (TML) of copper, lead and zinc sulfide concentrates, which can liquefy during transport. It is applicable to the determination of the TML of concentrates containing 10 % to 80 % (mass fraction) of lead, 10 % to 65 % (mass fraction) of zinc or 10 % to 55 % (mass fraction) of copper and is applicable to TML values in the range 3 % to 28 % (mass fraction).

3.1 flow moisture point
percentage of moisture at which a flow state is reached
3.2 transportable moisture limit
maximum percentage of moisture that a cargo can contain during transport without the risk of liquefaction
4  Principle
The moisture content of the sample is adjusted by mixing with water. The mixture is converted to a conical shape using a mould and tamper. The sample is placed on the flow table and the mould is removed. The flow characteristics are determined by repeated dropping of the flow table while observing the behaviour of the sample. When sufficient water has been added to the sample so that plastic deformation occurs during the dropping of the flow table, the sample is considered to be at its flow moisture point. The TML is calculated as 90 % of the flow moisture point.
5  Apparatus
Copper, lead and zinc concentrates can gain or lose moisture rapidly when exposed to air. The laboratory should be designed so that excessive temperatures, direct sunlight, air currents and humidity variations are avoided.
