Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 22 January 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 9
scope:

This practice covers the preparation and use of semiadiabatic calorimeters for measurement of absorbed dose in graphite, water, or polystyrene when irradiated with electrons. The calorimeters are either transported by a conveyor past a scanned electron beam or are stationary in a broadened beam. It also covers the use of these calorimeters to calibrate dosimeter systems in electron beams intended for radiation processing applications.

This practice applies to electron beams in the energy range from 4 to 12 MeV.

The absorbed dose range depends on the absorbing material and the irradiation and measurement conditions. Minimum dose is approximately 100 Gy and maximum dose is approximately 50 kGy.

The averaged absorbed dose rate range shall generally be greater than 10 Gy·s−1, but depends on the same conditions as above.

The temperature range for use of these calorimeters depends on the thermal resistance of the materials and on the calibration range of the temperature sensor.

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.
