1.1 This test method provides tests to compare the emf stabilities of base-metal thermoelements using dual, simultaneous, thermal-emf indicators. The tests are conducted in air at a specified constant temperature, and the emfs of the base-metal thermoelements are measured against a platinum thermoelement. Thus, the method also yields the time-dependent change of the emf of a base-metal thermoelement relative to a platinum thermoelement. The total life (time to open circuit) of the thermoelement can be determined by the method, if desired.
