Published By:International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
This International Standard gives
the underlying theory,
the basic principles for sampling and preparation of samples, and
the basic requirements for the design, installation and operation of sampling systems
for mechanical sampling, manual sampling and preparation of samples taken from a lot under transfer, to determine the chemical composition, moisture content, size distribution and other physical and metallurgical properties of the lot, except bulk density obtained using ISO 3852:2007 (Method 2).
The methods specified in this International Standard are applicable to both the loading and discharging of a lot by means of belt conveyors and other ore-handling equipment to which a mechanical sampler may be installed or where manual sampling may safely be conducted.
The methods are applicable to all iron ores, whether natural or processed (e.g. concentrates and agglomerates, such as pellets or sinters).
