IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation ofnational standards institutes (IS0 member bodies). The work of developing Inter-
national Standards is carried out through IS0 technical committees. Every member
body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been set up has the
right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmentaland non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to
the member bodies for approval before their acceptance as International Standards bythe IS0 Council.
International Standard IS0 728 was developed by Technical Committee ISO/TC 27,
Solid mineral fuels.
This second edition was submitted directly to the IS0 Council, in accordance with
clause 5.10.1 of part 1 of the Directives for the technical work of ISO. It cancels and
replaces the first edition (i.e. IS0 728-1974), which had been approved by the memberbodies of the following countries :
Egypt, Arab Rep. of Romania
Austria Germany, F.R. South Africa, Rep. of
Chile Korea, Rep. of United Kingdom
Colombia Netherlands USA
Czechoslovakia New Zealand USSR
The member body of the following country had expressed disapproval of the docu-
ment on technical grounds :

Scope and field of application 6 Procedure
This International Standard specifies a method of determining Select a set of sieves suitable for the purpose (see 9.1 and 9.2)and, if possible, such that no size fraction will exceed
the particle size distribution of a sample of coke of nominal top
size greater than 20 mm. about 25 YO of the mass of the sample; arrange the sieves in astack in order of size aperture with the smallest at the bottom.

Weigh the sample of coke, in several batches if necessary.

Record the mass of each size fraction. Calculate the cumulative
mass on each sieve starting with the sieve of largest aperture.
If the coke is excessively wet, the different size fractions will
have different moisture contents; this will lead to variable errors
