Standard Practice for Sampling and Testing of Possible Carbon Black Fugitive Emissions or Other Environmental Particulate, or Both
|Publication Date:||1 December 2003|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to air quality):||13.040.99|
This practice covers sampling and testing for distinguishing ASTM type carbon black, in the N100 to N900 series, from other environmental particulates.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information.
This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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.
This practice requires some degree of expertise on the part of the microscopist. For this reason, the microscopist must have adequate training and substantial on-the-job experience in identifying the morphological parameters of carbon black. In support of this analysis, Donnet's book(Footnote 2) is highly recommended to be used as a technical reference for recognizing and understanding the microstructure of carbon black.
