    Abstract

    This specification is applicable to glass thermohydrometers of various scale graduation systems, intended for use in a variety of ASTM Test Methods. The thermohydrometers covered by this specification have larger maximum permissible scale errors than do their Hg-filled counterparts. It is up to the user to decide if these thermohydrometers are appropriate for use in his or her application. This specification establishes requirements for thermohydrometers with respect to type, body, ballast, stem, scale, markings, calibration and verification, packaging, and inspection procedures.

    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 glass thermohydrometers of various scale graduation systems, intended for use in a variety of ASTM Test Methods.

    1.2 The thermohydrometers presented in this standard are not exact replacements for the thermohydrometers in Specification E100; the thermometers have larger maximum permissible scale errors than do their Hg-filled counterparts. The user should decide if these thermohydrometers are appropriate for use in his or her application.

    1.3 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.
