Standard Specification for Liquid-in-Glass ASTM Thermometers with Low-Hazard Precision Liquids
|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
|ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments):||17.200.20|
1.1 The purpose of this standard is to specify liquid-in-glass ASTM thermometers using low hazard thermometric liquids defined in this standard.
1.2 This standard specifies liquid-in-glass thermometers graduated in degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit that are frequently identified and used in methods under the jurisdiction of the various technical committees within ASTM. The current approved thermometers are listed in Table 1.
1.3 The technical requirements for the thermometric liquids used in the thermometers in are specified in . Tests for conformity to the technical requirements are also found in Annex A1.
Note 1-It has been found by experience that ASTM Thermometers, although developed in general for specific tests, may also be found suitable for other applications, thus precluding the need for new thermometer specifications differing in only minor features. However, it is suggested that technical committees contact E20.05 before choosing a currently designated thermometer for a new method to be sure the thermometer will be suitable for the intended application.
1.4 For full rationale, see Appendix X1.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
