Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 April 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Liquid fuels): 75.160.20
scope:

This test method covers the determination of isothermal secant and tangent bulk modulus of liquids which are stable and compatible with stainless steel under the conditions of test.

This test method is designed to be used over the temperature range from −40 to 200°C and from ambient to 68.95 Mpa (10 000 psig).

NOTE 1 - Because of the design of the test apparatus, the upper limit of pressure which can be attained is limited by the bulk modulus of the test fluid. Pressures as high as 68.95 Mpa will not be attained for fluids of relatively low bulk modulus at the test temperature.

This test method assumes that the user is proficient in the assembly and use of medium pressure (m/p) threaded and coned fittings which are intended for use at pressures up to 137.9 Mpa (20 000 psig).

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.

NOTE 2 - Because hydraulic pressure in the test system is produced by purely mechanical means, the test method is not subject to the hazards associated with systems which are pressurized pneumatically. Even small leaks will result in immediate drop in pressure to ambient without production of a high pressure liquid stream or mist.
