Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This test method covers the determination of non-volatile matter, that is, residue on evaporation, in solvent extract from aerospace components, using a rotary flash evaporator. The summary of the test method, the apparatus for testing, reagents and materials for testing, and procedure for testing are all presented in details.
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.
1.2 The procedure for extraction from components is described in practices such as Practice F303. Before subjecting the extract to the following method, it should be processed to remove the insoluble particulate in accordance with Practice F311 (Note 1). Particle count analysis of the removed particulate may then be performed in accordance with Test Method F312. If particulate is not removed from the extract prior to performing this method, this should be noted on the test report.
