Standard Test Method for Total Hemispherical Emittance of Surfaces up to 1400°C
|Publication Date:||1 November 2006|
|ICS Code (Properties of surfaces):||17.040.20|
1.1 This calorimetric test method covers the determination of total hemispherical emittance of metal and graphite surfaces and coated metal surfaces up to approximately 1400C. The upper-use temperature is limited only by the characteristics (for example, melting temperature, vapor pressure) of the specimen and the design limits of the test facility. This test method has been demonstrated for use up to 1400 C. The lower-use temperature is limited by the temperature of the bell jar.
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 limitations prior to use.
