ASTM WK41343

    New Practice for Determining Pond Skimmer Flow Rate

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.25 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the setting up and running of a test to determine the flow rate at various depths of a floating pond skimmer. 1.2 This practice is limited to full-scale test conditions and does not address hydraulic modeling or pipe-flow-based calculations. 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. 1.4 All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026 unless superseded by this practice. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.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.

    No generally recognized practice/procedure exists to measure the size-specific flow rate of floating skimmers.
