5.1 These test methods calibrate or demonstrate conformity of the humidity level in a purge gas generated by a humidity generator at a fixed temperature. Such calibration or demonstration of conformity may be required by quality initiatives.
5.2 Conformance demonstrates that the humidified purge gas is within some established limits.
5.3 Calibration provides an offset and or slope value that may be used for establishing the relative humidity scale of the apparatus.View Less
1.1 These test methods describe the humidity calibration (or conformance) of humidity generators for use with thermogravimetric analyzers and other thermal analysis apparatus. The humidity range covered is 5 % relative humidity (% RH) to 95 % RH and the temperature range is 0 °C to 80 °C.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 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.
