The Modified Proctor/Fagerberg Test (MPFT) refers to two of the five methods used to determine the Transportable Moisture Limit (TML) of Group A or liquefiable solid bulk cargoes. The three other test methods are the Penetration Test (PT), Flow Table Test (FTT) and the standard Proctor/Fagerberg Test (PFT) stated in Appendix 2 of the IMSBC Code[1].

There are two versions of the Modified Proctor/Fagerberg Test (MPFT) known as the Modified Proctor/Fagerberg Test for Iron Ore Fines[2] and the Modified Proctor/Fagerberg Test for Coal[3]. These two methods have not yet been implemented in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC Code) but have been implemented on a voluntary basis in some countries. Contact your relevant authority to determine if these tests can be used to determine the Transportable Moisture Limit (TML) of Group A or liquefiable solid bulk cargoes.
