Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 March 2000
Status: inactive
Page Count: 12
ICS Code (Measurement of force, weight and pressure): 17.100
ICS Code (Explosion protection): 13.230
scope:

This test method is designed to determine the deflagration parameters of a combustible dust-air mixture within a near-spherical closed vessel of 20 L or greater volume. The parameters measured are the maximum pressure and the maximum rate of pressure rise.

Data obtained from this test method provide a relative measure of deflagration characteristics. The data have also been shown to be applicable to the design of protective measures, such as deflagration venting (1).²

This test method should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment that takes into account all of the factors that are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use.

NOTE 1 - The evaluation of the deflagration parameters of maximum pressure and maximum rate of pressure rise can also be done using a 1.2-L Hartmann Apparatus. Test Method E 789, has been published regarding this application; however, the use of these data in the design of deflagration venting and containment systems is not recommended.

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.
