    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers three classes of flat asbestos-cement sheets for use as cooling tower fill.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C17 on Fiber-Reinforced Cement Products, this specification was withdrawn in November 2019. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers three classes of flat asbestos-cement sheets for use as cooling tower fill.

    1.2 Specifically excluded from this specification are asbestos-cement products intended for use as tower partitioning and casing materials, splash bars, water distribution conduits, and demisters. Also excluded are corrugated sheets and splash bars used as cooling tower fill (heat exchange surfaces) that are covered in Specification C1081.

    1.3 The values stated in the SI system are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units in parentheses are provided for information only.

    1.4 Warning—Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestos-cement products, minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysotile asbestos, refer to “Safe Use of Chrysotile: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures.”2

    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.
