Standard Test Method for Nonvolatile Residue of Solvent Extract from Aerospace Components (Using Flash Evaporator)
|Publication Date:||1 November 2005|
|ICS Code (Components for aerospace construction):||49.035|
This test method covers the determination of nonvolatile matter, that is, residue on evaporation, in solvent extract from aerospace components, using a rotary flash evaporator.
The procedure for extraction from components is described in practices such as Practice F 303. In cases in which analysis of particulate contamination is also required, before subjecting the extract to the following method, it should be processed in accordance with Practice F 311 (Note 1). Particle count analysis should then be performed in accordance with Test Methods F 312.
NOTE 1 - Membrane filters with a maximum extractable content of 0.5 weight % should be used on samples to be processed by this test method. Conventional membranes contain 5 to 10 % extractables. For obtaining very low background levels, consideration should be given to using membranes without grid marks.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
