Significance and Use
4.1 The results obtained by these test methods should serve as a guide in, but not as the sole basis for, the selection of a chemical-resistant carbon brick for a particular application. No attempt has been made to incorporate into these test methods all the factors that may affect the performance of carbon brick when subjected to various actual service conditions.
1.1 These test methods are intended for use as short-term tests for evaluating the physical properties of carbon brick and their chemical resistance at various temperatures in immersion service. These test methods provide a means of determining the following changes in the carbon brick specimen and the test media:
1.1.1 Weight, appearance, and compressive strength of the carbon brick specimen.
1.1.2 Appearance of the test media before, during, and after testing of the carbon brick specimen.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 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.
