Standard Test Method for Solubility of Fixed Gases in Low-Boiling Liquids
|Publication Date:||10 November 1998|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the solubilities of nonreactive gases such as nitrogen and helium in liquids that boil below 273 K. This test method is applicable at temperatures from 77 to 300 K from subambient pressure to 6.5 MPa (65 atm). This test method does not provide for analysis of the vapor phase in equilibrium with the liquid (see Section 3 for a description of terms).
1.2 This test method as written describes the procedures to be followed for determination of the solubilities of helium and nitrogen. If suitable modifications are made to the analytical measurements by gas chromatography, solubilities of other gases such as argon, hydrogen, oxygen, etc., can be determined.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. In cases where materials, products, or equipment are available in inch-pound units only, SI units are omitted.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. For specific hazard statements, see Notes 1 and 3 and Annex A1.
