ASTM International - ASTM E544-10

Standard Practices for Referencing Suprathreshold Odor Intensity

Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 November 2010
Status: inactive
Page Count: 11
ICS Code (Ambient atmospheres): 13.040.20
scope:

1.1 These practices are designed to outline a preferred means for referencing the odor intensities of a material in the suprathreshold region.

1.2 The general objective is to reference the odor intensity rather than other odor properties of a sample.

1.3 These practices are designed to reference the odor intensity on the ASTM Odor Intensity Referencing Scale of any odorous material. This is done by a comparison of the odor intensity of the sample to the odor intensities of a series of concentrations of the reference odorant, which is 1-butanol (n-butanol).

1.4 The method by which the reference odorant vapors are to be presented for evaluation by the panelists is specified. The manner by which the test sample is presented will depend on the nature of the sample, and is not defined herein.

1.5 Test sample presentation should be consistent with good standard practice (1) and should be explicitly documented in the test report.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.7 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. See Annex A1 for specific safety data.
