HOW TO PACK AND MARK AGGREGATE SAMPLE BEFORE DESPATCHING FOR LAB TEST?

Packing and Marking of Aggregate Sample

  1. Before dispatching, each sample of aggregate is packed separately in such a way so as to prevent loss of any fine material.
  2. Use container or sample bag to pack coarse aggregate.
  3. Use tight container or closely woven bags to pack fine aggregate and all-in-aggregate; so that there is no loss of the finer particles
  4. Each package must include a card, suitably protected from damage by moisture and abrasion, giving the following information
    • Name and address of the sender
    • Name of the quarry, pit, river bed
    • Proposed use for material
    • Geographic location and its shipping facilities.
