|Publication Date:||10 November 1998|
|ICS Code (Noise emitted by machines and equipment):||17.140.20|
|ICS Code (Other lifting equipment):||53.020.99|
1.1 This test method describes a procedure for acoustic emission (AE) testing of insulated aerial personnel devices.
1.1.1 Equipment Covered- This test method covers the following types of vehicle-mounted insulated aerial personnel devices:
18.104.22.168 Extensible boom aerial personnel devices,
22.214.171.124 Articulating boom aerial personnel devices, and
126.96.36.199 Any combination of 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
1.1.2 Equipment Not Covered- This test method does not cover any of the following equipment:
220.127.116.11 Noninsulated aerial devices,
18.104.22.168 Material-handling aerial devices,
22.214.171.124 Digger-derricks with platform, and
126.96.36.199 Cranes with platform.
1.2 The AE test method is used to detect and area-locate emission sources. Verification of emission sources may require the use of other nondestructive test (NDT) methods, such as radiography, ultrasonics, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, and visual inspection.
1.3 The values given in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units 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.
