Hot Box Operating Techniques and Procedures: A Survey
A questionnaire dealing with operating techniques and procedures of guarded and calibrated hot boxes was mailed to 14 hot box operators in the United States and Canada. Questions pertaining to testing capabilities, instrumentation, calibration specimens, steady-state criteria, etc., were asked. Responses from the 13 laboratories returning the survey are summarized in the paper. This information should be of interest to hot box operators, as well as prove helpful in future revisions of the guarded and calibrated hot box test methods.
