Principle
Measurement of the mass of a certain quantity of powder which in a loose condition exactly fills a cup of known volume. The loose condition is obtained by using a scott volumeter, when filling the cup, by cascading the powder over a series of inclined plates in a Scott Volumeter. The ratio between the mass and the volume represents the apparent density. This is the definition of the apparent density obtained by bulk density tester.

-The baffles are arranged so that the powder falls on to each of them in turn, thereby breaking the fall and reducing the velocity of the stream of powder.
What is the specifications of a baffle box in scott volumeter/apparent density tester in ISO 3923-2 Metallic powders Determination of apparent density part 2 Scott volumeter method?
-The baffle box of scott volumeter/apparent density tester should have a square section, and containing four glass baffles which may be located and retained by grooves in opposite sides of the box and may thus be removed for ease of cleaning. The baffles are arranged so that the powder falls on to each of them in turn, thereby breaking the fall and reducing the velocity of the stream of powder. It is important that non of the powder can pass between the upper edge of the glass baffles and the sides of the baffle box.
