Standard Practice for Field Sampling of Aerospace Fluids in Containers
|Publication Date:||1 November 2009|
|ICS Code (Ground service and maintenance equipment):||49.100|
This practice covers field sampling of fluids from hermetically sealed containers and other fluid containers of 208-L volume maximum. It may be utilized at manufacturing, storage, or use levels for obtaining representative fluid samples for chemical, physical, or particulate matter determinations.
Use of this practice depends upon variables such as fluid toxicity, restrictive fluid odors, fluid flammability, and so forth. It is suitable for most hydraulic fluids; however, care should be exercised in determining compatibility before use.2
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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. For hazard statement, see 6.5.1.
2 Where a special environment is required, a Proposed Laboratory Method for Sampling Aerospace Fluids in Containers is under development in the committee. For further information write to B. R. Hall, American Petroleum Institute, 1220 L St., N.W., Washington, D. C. 20005.
