ASTM - ASTM D495 - STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR HIGH-VOLTAGE, LOW-CURRENT, DRY ARC RESISTANCE OF SOLID ELECTRICAL INSULATION Organization: ASTM
Date: 2014-04-01
Description: This test method covers, in a preliminary fashion, the differentiation of similar materials' resistance to the action of a high-voltage, low-current arc close to the surface of insulation, when a conducting path is formed causing the material to become conducting due to the localized thermal and chemical decomposition and erosion.
ASTM - ASTM C1774 - STANDARD GUIDE FOR THERMAL PERFORMANCE TESTING OF CRYOGENIC INSULATION SYSTEMS Organization: ASTM
Date: 2013-11-01
Description: A key aspect of this guide is the notion of an insulation system, not an insulation material. Under the practical use environment of most cryogenic applications even a single-material system can still be a complex insulation system (1-3).
ASTM - ASTM C745 - STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR HEAT FLUX THROUGH EVACUATED INSULATIONS USING A GUARDED FLAT PLATE BOILOFF CALORIMETER Organization: ASTM
Date: 1992-07-15
Description: Although this test method is also technically applicable to these latter insulations, other ASTM methods with less stringent requirements are equally applicable and much more economical and practical for such materials.
AA CCW50 - CODE WORDS FOR OVERHEAD ALUMINUM ELECTRICAL CONDUCTORS - SEVENTH EDITION Organization: AA
Date: 1999-01-01
Description: Recognizing this situation, the Technical Committee on Electrical Conductor of The Aluminum Association's Electrical Technical Division in 1960 initiated a study aimed at reducing the number of code words required for these products.
ASTM - ASTM D257 - STANDARD TEST METHODS FOR DC RESISTANCE OR CONDUCTANCE OF INSULATING MATERIALS Organization: ASTM
Date: 2014-04-01
Description: This standard describes several general alternative methodologies for measuring resistance (or conductance). Specific materials can be tested most appropriately by using standard ASTM test methods applicable to the specific material that define both voltage stress limits and finite electrification times as well as specimen configuration and electrode geometry.
ASTM - ASTM D150 - STANDARD TEST METHODS FOR AC LOSS CHARACTERISTICS AND PERMITTIVITY (DIELECTRIC CONSTANT) OF SOLID ELECTRICAL INSULATION Organization: ASTM
Date: 2011-08-01
Description: Bartnikas, Chapter 1, "Dielectric Loss in Solids," Engineering Dielectrics, Vol IIA, Electrical Properties of Solid Insulating Materials: Molecular Structure and Electrical Behavior, R.
ASTM - ASTM C1363 - STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR THERMAL PERFORMANCE OF BUILDING MATERIALS AND ENVELOPE ASSEMBLIES BY MEANS OF A HOT BOX APPARATUS Organization: ASTM
Date: 2011-05-15
Description: The hot box has been used to investigate the thermal behavior of non-homogeneous building assemblies such as structural members, piping, electrical outlets, or construction defects such as insulation voids. This test method sets forth the general design requirements necessary to construct and operate a satisfactory hot box apparatus, and covers a wide variety of apparatus constructions, test conditions, and operating conditions.
ASTM - ASTM D638 - STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR TENSILE PROPERTIES OF PLASTICS Organization: ASTM
Date: 2014-12-15
Description: NOTE 3—This test method may be used for testing phenolic molded resin or laminated materials. However, where these materials are used as electrical insulation, such materials should be tested in accordance with Test Methods D229 and Test Method D651.
AA CWU49 - CODE WORDS FOR UNDERGROUND DISTRIBUTION CABLES - THIRD EDITION Organization: AA
Date: 1999-01-01
Description: Consequently, manufacturers have assigned code words to UD cables as a convenient means of concisely defining specific cable designs (conductor size, insulation type, voltage rating, neutral configuration and size, number of phase conductors and type of assembly).
ASTM - ASTM E839 - STANDARD TEST METHODS FOR SHEATHED THERMOCOUPLES AND SHEATHED THERMOCOUPLE CABLE Organization: ASTM
Date: 2011-11-01
Description: The tests described herein include test methods to measure the following properties of sheathed thermocouple material and assemblies. Insulation Properties: Compaction—direct method, absorption method, and tension method.
ASTM - ASTM C177 - STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR STEADY-STATE HEAT FLUX MEASUREMENTS AND THERMAL TRANSMISSION PROPERTIES BY MEANS OF THE GUARDED-HOT-PLATE APPARATUS Organization: ASTM
Date: 2013-09-15
Description: In order to ensure the level of precision and accuracy expected, persons applying this standard must possess a knowledge of the requirements of thermal measurements and testing practice and of the practical application of heat transfer theory relating to thermal insulation materials and systems. Detailed operating procedures, including design schematics and electrical drawings, should be available for each apparatus to ensure that tests are in accordance with this test method.
