    ASTM E145

    Abstract

    This specification covers the performance requirements for four types (Types IA, IB, IIA, and IIB) of general-purpose air ovens of the gravity-convection and forced-ventilation types ordinarily used in testing operations. The temperature within the testing chamber shall be controllable by an automatic device and, when examined with appropriate test methods provided herein, shall be uniform within the tolerances for temperature uniformity, time constant, and rate of ventilation requirements for the particular type of oven.

    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 specification covers the performance requirements for general-purpose air ovens ordinarily used in testing operations, which have a testing chamber up to 0.6 m3 (25 ft3) in volume. It is applicable to gravity-convection ovens designed to operate over all or part of the temperature range from 20°C above ambient temperature to 200°C and to forced-ventilation ovens designed to operate over all or part of the temperature range from 20°C above ambient temperature to 500°C.

    Note 1—Ovens are designed for maximum operating temperatures of about 200°C, 300°C, and 500°C, the thermal insulation and cost of the oven being dependent on the maximum temperature required.

    1.2 This specification does not include safety requirements that are essential for ovens used in the presence of combustible vapors or gases.

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