This designation accepts the presence of undersize and oversize pieces of armourstone. For further information on grading, see EN With a continuous process the quantity produced during an agreed period is treated as a batch. Test laboratories can determine the time required to achieve constant mass for specific types and sizes of sample dependent upon the drying capacity of the oven used.
NOTE It is preferable that armourstone should be sampled at the quarry or during the loading for transport or unloading. The aim of sampling is to obtain samples that em representative of the average properties of the 1338-32.
The methods described are also suitable for obtaining sampling increments which are to be tested separately. Methods to be used for sample reduction are also given. The correct use of the specified apparatus and methods helps to avoid biased sampling inclusive the possibility of human bias introduced by visual selection.
Sampling variation caused by the heterogeneity of the batch shall be reduced to an acceptable level by taking an adequate number of sampling increments.
NOTE For guidance on numbers and sizes of dn and test portions for testing armourstone as specified in EN Sampling increments are selected at random from all parts 133383-2 the batch that the samples are to represent. Armourstone from which no sampling increment can be taken because it is not accessible, or for some other practical reason shall not be considered to be part of the batch that is represented by the samples.
For example, if sampling increments are taken from armourstone discharged from a silo, the samples represent the armourstone that has been discharged, not the armourstone remaining in the silo. The sampler shall be informed of the aim 13833-2 the sampling. The floor shall be sufficiently clean and close-textured to be able to distinguish and recover the material of the sample from the floor material.
Those involved in the planning and execution of sampling should work closely with the operational management to ensure safe working practices. Mechanically selected gradings should preferably be sampled from a stationary conveyor belt 13383-2 from the stream of material.
Sampling increments should be taken at regular intervals throughout the period the batch is in motion. Gradings of which the pieces of armourstone are individually handled may be sampled at the most convenient location.
Sampling from static batches should be avoided wherever possible since it is difficult to satisfy the principle of taking sampling increments at random from all parts of the batch, and hence segregation is likely to cause the sampling to produce biased results. During sampling, grabs or other extraction equipment shall be filled to a minimum such that the degree of filling does not adversely affect the representative nature of the sample or sampling increment.
When this gives too large a sampling increment, it should be reduced by one of the methods described in 4.
13383–2 sample increment shall be taken by catching the discharge stream in a loader bucket, making sure that the complete cross-section of the stream of material is intercepted. At the beginning and the ending of the sampling the edge of the bucket shall pass the cross-section of the stream as fast as possible. Samples may also be taken at the discharge from a screen by the same method.
All sampling increments shall be taken at the same sampling point. In every sampling increment all 13383-2 between two cross-sections shall be taken. The distance between the cross-sections shall be determined by the required quantity of the sampling increment.
During filling of a silo the material segregates and as a result the finer material tends to be found in the centre of the silo with the coarser material along the wall sides.
The number of sampling increments should be related to this variation. For this purpose, the contents of one or more loader buckets, grabs, lorries or any other means of handling or transport shall be taken. The period during which the sampling is done eh be divided into a number of equal intervals and a sampling increment shall be taken in the middle of each interval.
If at the 113383-2 of sampling no material of a segregated stockpile is undergoing routine removal, the removal of material shall be simulated so as not to distort the representativity of the sampling increment with the segregation effects associated with the initiation of stockpile extraction.
The sampling increments shall be taken at random or at equal distances around the stockpile or part thereof to be sampled. When sampling from a non-segregated stockpile, a sampling increment shall be taken as indicated for a segregated stockpile or by taking a quantity fn material from a random 133383-2 which is easily reached with the equipment available.
17/ DC – BS EN Armourstone. Part 2. Test methods
Sampling increments shall be taken from across the pile by removing, at random or at equally distributed locations, adequate quantities of material whilst avoiding the possibly segregated material at the start and finish of the pile see Figure 1.
Take the material in strips over the full width of the pile or in equal numbers of half strips from the left and right hand side of the centre line of the pile. When one load contains insufficient material for one sample to be tested several loads shall be taken.
For properties for which testing of aggregate is permitted, sampling shall be carried out in accordance with EN Sampling increments consisting of individual pieces of armourstone shall be taken from the batch to be tested and may be taken from the samples which have been taken for the determination of the particle size or mass distribution.
Sampling increments shall be selected by one of the following methods: If individual pieces of armourstone are significantly larger than the minimum size or mass required for the test s to be executed, a portion of appropriate size or mass may be obtained by breaking a representative piece.
The objective is to obtain laboratory samples representative of the batch to be tested but to have carried sample reduction at source so as to minimize transport costs and reduce unnecessary sample reduction at the testing laboratory. If a sampling increment of a coarse grading is too large as test portion, one of the procedures as described in 4. If a sampling increment of a light grading is too large for the preparation of the bulk sample, the procedure as specified in 4.
BS EN – Armourstone. Test methods
If a sampling increment of a heavy grading is too large for the preparation of the bulk sample, the procedure as specified in 4. When discharging a sample from a grab, catch all the material from one symmetrical quarter or half of the grab content in one or more buckets.
If further reduction is required, tip the bucket s containing the reduced sample over two adjoining buckets and discard the contents of one bucket. Repeat this procedure until the required size of test portion is obtained. The distance between two parallel set plates shall be at least three times the sieve size of the nominal upper grading limit. When discharging a sample from a loader bucket, take all the material from a cross-sectional segment or from one side of an imaginary cross-sectional plane in the centre of the loader bucket, discharged between two parallel and vertically set plates 133832- at one side of a vertically set plate.
When discharging a sample from a grab, take all the material from one symmetrical quarter or half of the grab content, discharged between two vertically set plates at right angles to each other or at one side of a vertically set plate.
When reducing a sample already discharged onto a floor area 4. For the reduction of a sample to approximately the half amount, stretch a wire as a separation line over the sample. Where segregation is present in one direction of the deposited sample, fn the wire in the same direction see Figure 2 and take the subsample by removing all armourstone located, or for the largest part located, 133883-2 one side of the imagined vertical plane projected by the wire.
Where segregation is present in one direction of the deposited sample, place the wires in the same direction see Figure 3 and take the subsample by removing all stones located, or for the largest part located, between the imaginary vertical planes projected by the wires. To facilitate the reduction procedure a sample to be reduced by using wires may be spread in a layer of thickness not fn than twice the nominal upper size of the material.
Where no segregation of the material has occurred, the subsample may be limited to half the separated strip. Each piece of armourstone shall be marked clearly and durably with the allocated number. The subsample shall be taken by randomly selecting numbered pieces of armourstone until the required size of test portion 133833-2 obtained.
The crushing 13383–2 be carried out with a laboratory jaw crusher. Laboratory samples shall be transported in such a way that pieces of armourstone are not broken in transit. The sampling report shall refer to this part of this European Standard and state: The aperture sizes and the number of sieves shall be appropriate for the nature of the sample and the accuracy required. The cumulative mass of the pieces of armourstone passing each sieve shall be expressed as a percentage of the total mass of the material.
Alternatively, for mm, 90 mm and 63 mm square openings, perforated steel plate sieves. In all cases the 63 mm sieve shall be used. Perforated steel plate sieves shall be in accordance with EN The floor shall be sufficiently clean and close-textured to be able to distinguish and recover the material of the test portion from the floor material.
The mass of the test portion in kilograms shall be at least twice the nominal upper limit of the grading in millimetres. Pass the sample in successive parts over the sieves in order of increasing sieve size, starting with the 63 mm sieve up to and including the mm sieve. Place the mm ne over the stones retained on the mm sieve.
