Standard Test Method for Moisture in Wool by Oven-Drying
|Publication Date:||31 August 1990|
|ICS Code (Natural fibres):||59.060.10|
This test method covers the determination of the amount of moisture present in ordinary commercial and industrial samples of wool in all forms except grease wool, using the oven-drying technique.
Formulas for calculating the moisture content (as-received basis) and moisture regain (oven-dried basis) are given. It is always important to use the correct term which corresponds to the basis used in the calculation (see 12.2.1).
NOTE 1 - The determination of moisture content for textile materials in general is covered in Test Methods D 2654, and an optimal method for determining the moisture in wool by distillation with toluene is covered in Test Method D 2462. A method for sampling wool for the determination of moisture in wool is covered in Practice D 2525. The oven-drying method has been adapted for cotton in Test Method D 2495.
