Significance and Use
This test method is feasible only for the volatile moisture present on the graphite due to adsorption from the atmosphere and is not intended to give representative moisture data for graphite that has been exposed to liquid water contamination.
1.1 This test method provides a practical determination for the percentage of moisture in a graphite sample.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this 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.
