New British Standard – Properties of Bulk and Powdered Materials

The BSI has decided to undertake the drafting of a new standard for Properties of Bulk and Powdered Materials. The scope of the new proposed standard is:-

"This British Standard defines the physical and flow properties that are commonly used when designing mechanical handling and storage systems for bulk & powdered materials. The standard gives guidance on methods and procedures for the determination of these characteristics and their application."

If you have any comments regarding the contents of the above standard or views about inclusions then please contact me as soon as possible.
