Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 15 January 1992

Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Occupational safety. Industrial hygiene): 13.100
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This practice establishes a procedure for evaluating the skin contact temperature for heated surfaces. Two complimentary procedures are presented. The first is a purely mathematical approximation that can be used during design or for worst case evaluation. The second method describes the thermesthesiometer, an instrument that analogues the human sensory mechanism and can be used only on operating systems.

NOTE 1--Both procedures listed herein are intended for use with Guide C 1055. When used in conjunction with that guide, these procedures can determine the burn hazard potential for a surface.

1.2 A bibliography of human burn evaluation studies and surface hazard measurement is provided in the References at the end of Guide C 1055. Thermesthesiometer and mathematical modeling references are provided in the References at the end of this standard (1-5).

1.3 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.
