    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the resistance of flat plate solar collectors to water penetration when water is applied to their outer surfaces with a static air pressure at the outer surface higher than the pressure at the interior of the collector.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E44 on Solar, Geothermal and Other Alternative Energy Sources, this test method was withdrawn in November 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it is believed that this document is no longer used and therefore not needed.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the resistance of flat plate solar collectors to water penetration when water is applied to their outer surfaces with a static air pressure at the outer surface higher than the pressure at the interior of the collector.

    1.2 This test method is applicable to any flat plate solar collector.

    1.3 The proper use of this test method requires a knowledge of the principles of pressure and deflection measurement.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5 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. Specific precautionary information is contained in Section 6.
