This test method covers the apparatuses required, and standard procedures and calculations involved in the calibration of microwave ovens designed for both home and commercial use. It was developed for use in the evaluation of volatile and nonvolatile components of microwave susceptor packages. There are, however, no recognized standards by which to estimate bias of this test method.
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.
1.1 This test method is applicable to microwave ovens designed for both home and commercial use. It was developed for use in the evaluation of volatile and nonvolatile components of microwave susceptor packages.
1.2 This test method was collaboratively evaluated with microwave ovens with nominal output ratings of 700 W.
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.
