    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for Halon 1301, or halogenated hydrocarbon compound Bromotrifluoromethane (CF3Br) as a fire-fighting medium. The fire-fighting equipment or hardware that employs Halon 1301, the conditions of employing such equipment (for example, handhelds, fixed installations, etc.), and the storage or transportation of Halon 1301, are not addressed in this specification. The material shall be tested for purity, methanol impurity, acidity, water content, halogen ion content, nonvolatile residue, suspended matter and sediment, and fixed or nonabsorbable gases in the vapor phase.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for Halon 1301 as a fire-fighting medium.

    1.2 This specification does not address the fire-fighting equipment or hardware that employs Halon 1301 or the conditions of employing such equipment (for example, handhelds, fixed installations, etc.).

    1.3 This specification does not address the storage or transportation of Halon 1301. Storage, handling, and transportation issues are addressed in Practice D5631.

    1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 6, of this specification: 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. Specific hazards statements are given in 4.5.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
