Standard Test Method for Hot-Surface Performance of High-Temperature Thermal Insulation
|Publication Date:||10 May 1997|
|ICS Code (Refractories):||81.080|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the performance of commercial sizes of both block and pipe forms of thermal insulating materials when exposed to simulated hot-surface application conditions. The term "hot-surface performance" has reference to a simulated use-temperature test in which the heated testing surface is in a horizontal position.
1.2 This test method refers primarily to high-temperature insulations that are applicable to hot-side temperatures in excess of 200°F (93°C). It may be used for materials such as preformed insulations, insulating cements, blankets, etc., by proper laboratory preparation of the samples.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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.
