|Publication Date:||10 November 1998|
|ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments):||17.200.20|
This test method covers visual and dimensional inspection, test for
permanency of pigment, test for
bulb stability, and test for scale accuracy to be used in the
verification of liquid-in-glass
thermometers as specified in Specification E 1. However, these
procedures may be applied to other
