    ASTM E144

    Abstract

    This practice covers methods for judging the soundness of new and used oxygen combustion bombs, and describes the precautions to be observed in oxygen bomb combustion methods. This practice is applicable to all procedures in which samples are completely oxidized by combustion in a metal bomb containing oxygen under pressure. Hydrostatic test and proof test shall be performed. The following precautions shall be observed in all oxygen bomb combustion methods: sample weight; oxygen filling system; ignition system; and safety barricade.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers methods for judging the soundness of new and used oxygen combustion bombs, and describes the precautions to be observed in oxygen bomb combustion methods.

    1.2 This practice is applicable to all procedures in which samples are completely oxidized by combustion in a metal bomb containing oxygen under pressure. Where there is conflict with specific precautions in individual ASTM methods, the latter shall take precedence.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalent of inch-pound units may be approximate.

    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.
