    Abstract

    This specification covers the acceptable design details for the plenum chamber used in specified air performance measurement tests for vacuum cleaners. Plenum chambers conforming to this specification shall be fabricated in accordance with the dimensions, tolerances, and notes indicated for the following components: plenum chamber assembly; orifice plate; orifice plate holder and assembly; manometer connection; and acceptable machined edges for orifice plates.

    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.

    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the acceptable details and tolerances for the plenum chamber used in specified air performance measurement tests for vacuum cleaners.

    1.2 The plenum chamber is designed for vacuum measurements only. (Warning—The plenum chamber has been shown to accurately determine maximum air power values at various test points for vacuum cleaners. There is a possibility that the airflow values measured with orifices larger than 2 in. at high flow rates may be erroneous due to the proximity of the top and bottom surfaces to the orifice plate inlet.)

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
