ASTM WK27505

    New Specification for ASTM Low-Hazard Liquid Thermohydrometers

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E20.05 | Committee E20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers glass non-mercurial thermohydrometers of various scale graduation systems intended for use in a variety of ASTM test methods. 1.2 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.

    Standard is being written to provide non-mercury thermohydrometers for use in ASTM test methods. By creating a standard, the technical committees will have the opportunity to choose instruments appropriate for their test methods.
