Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates - Part 9: Assessment of fines - Methylene blue test

This standard describes the reference method used for type testing and in cases of dispute for the determination of the methylene blue value of the 0/2 mm fraction in fine aggregates or all-in aggregates (MB). It also describes the reference method for the determination of the methylene blue value of the 0/0,125 mm fraction (MBF) in Annex A. For other purposes, in particular factory production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with the suitable reference method has been established.

Prüfverfahren für geometrische Eigenschaften von Gesteinskörnungen - Teil 9: Beurteilung von Feinanteilen-Methylenblau-Verfahren

Diese Norm legt das für die Erstprüfung und in Streitfällen anzuwendende Referenzverfahren für die Bestim-mung des Methylenblau Werts für die Kornklasse 0/2 mm in feinen Gesteinskörnungen oder Korngemischen fest. Ferner wird in Anhang A ein Referenzverfahren für die Bestimmung des Methylenblau Werts für die Kornklasse 0/0,125 mm (MBF) festgelegt. Für andere Zwecke, speziell im Rahmen der werkseigenen Produktions¬kontrolle, dürfen andere Verfahren angewendet werden, sofern ein ausreichender Zusammenhang zum Referenzverfahren nachgewiesen wurde.

Essais pour déterminer les caractéristiques géométriques des granulats - Partie 9 : Qualification des fines - Essai au bleu de méthylène

La présente norme décrit la méthode de référence utilisée pour les essais de type initiaux et, en cas de litige, pour déterminer la valeur de bleu de méthylène de la fraction 0/2 mm dans les sables ou les graves (MB). Elle décrit aussi la méthode de référence permettant de déterminer la valeur de bleu de méthylène de la fraction 0/0,125 mm (MBF) dans l'Annexe A. Dans les autres cas, en particulier pour la maîtrise de la production en usine, d’autres méthodes peuvent être utilisées sous réserve qu’une corrélation appropriée avec la méthode de référence ait été établie.

Preskusi geometričnih lastnosti agregatov - 9. del: Ugotavljanje finih delcev - Preskus z metilen modrim (vključno z dopolnilom A1)

Ta standard opisuje referenčno metodo, ki se uporablja za tipsko preskušanje in v primeru spora za ugotavljanje vrednosti metilen modrega deleža 0/2 mm v finih agregatih ali nesepariranih agregatih (MB). Prav tako opisuje referenčno metodo za določanje vrednosti metilen modrega deleža 0/0,125 mm (MBF) v dodatku A. Za druge namene, zlasti za kontrolo proizvodnje v obratu, se lahko uporabijo druge metode, če obstaja primerna delovna povezava z referenčno metodo.

1 Scope

This standard describes the reference method used for type testing and in cases of dispute for the

determination of the methylene blue value of the 0/2 mm fraction in fine aggregates or all-in

aggregates (MB). It also describes the reference method for the determination of the methylene blue

value of the 0/0,125 mm fraction (MB ) in Annex A. For other purposes, in particular factory

production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with

the suitable reference method has been established.

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated

references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced

document (including any amendments) applies.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1
subsample
sample obtained by means of a sample reduction procedure
3.2
test portion
sample used as a whole in a single test
3.3
fines
particle size fraction of an aggregate which passes the 0,063 mm sieve

NOTE The lower limit can be zero.
3.5
constant mass

successive weighings after drying at least 1 h apart not differing by more than 0,1 %

NOTE In many cases constant mass can be achieved after a test specimen has been dried for a pre-

determined period in a specified oven at (110 ± 5) °C. 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.

4 Principle

Increments of a solution of methylene blue are added successively to a suspension of the test portion

in water. The adsorption of dye solution by the test portion is checked after each addition of solution

by carrying out a stain test on filter paper to detect the presence of free dye.

When the presence of free dye is confirmed the methylene blue value (MB or MB ) is calculated and

expressed as grams of dye adsorbed per kilogram of the size fraction tested.

NOTE A conformity check, adding a single quantity of dye solution equivalent to a specified limiting value

and which may be used as part of a production control process, is described in Annex B.

5 Reagents

5.1 Dye solution, solution of standard or technical quality methylene blue, (10,0 ± 0,1) g/l (see

Annex C). The maximum period of use of the solution shall be 28 days. It shall be stored away from

light.
5.2 Distilled or demineralised water.
5.3 Kaolinite, of known methylene blue value (MB ) (see Annex D).

NOTE Kaolinite of MB value between 1 g and 2 g per 100 g of kaolinite is preferable in order to avoid

excessive use of dye.
6 Apparatus
All apparatus shall conform to the general requirements of EN 932-5.

6.1 Burette, with capacity of either 100 ml or 50 ml and graduation of either 1/10 ml or 1/5 ml, or

6.4 Impeller agitator, capable of controlled variable rotation rates up to (600 ± 60) min with three

or four impeller blades of (75 ± 10) mm diameter.

NOTE Alternative types of mixer can be used if it can be shown that results obtained agree with results

produced using an impeller agitator as specified above.
6.5 Balance, readable to 0,1 % of the mass to be weighed.
6.6 Stopwatch or stopclock, readable to 1 s.
6.7 Test sieve, 2 mm aperture, with guard sieve (if necessary).
6.8 Beaker, glass or plastic, capacity about 1 l or about 2 l.
