P1097 is an project managed by AMIRA International who's objective it was to determine a new or modified test that could be used to determine the Transportable Moisture Limit (TML) of Iron Ore Fines.


Summary[edit]

There is a move by Maritime Authorities worldwide to have a TML for each bulk cargo shipped by sea. Current TML testing options are based on the use of methods originally developed for concentrates. For bulk cargoes containing coarse particles (e.g. iron ore, coal), these tests are problematic. The relationships between the three most widely used TML test methods are unclear, and the implications of removing the +6mm fraction before conducting the TML measurement are not understood. This project was to investigate the potential failure mechanisms of bulk iron ore cargoes while assessing the current TML test methods and relevance to any failure[1].

Ultimately the project group, know as the Iron Ore Technical Working Group (TWG) ,produced a new test method known as the Modified Proctor/Fagerberg Test for Iron Ore Fines. The results from this project can be seen in five publicly available reports (see below). These reports are also available at the TWG's website, which is http://ironorefines-twg.com/[2], and in a summary also available below.
