Test method C measures average thermal conductivity1 taking two temperature points one at a very low temperature and one at a very high temperaturecalculating the average of those two data points, and designating that the average for the entire range. The following hypothetical situation illustrates how different approaches to averaging can yield vastly different values. C lists thermal conductivity values in two sections, one as determined by C, and the other by C The user shall establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units which are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Thermal insulation materials are commercially available in a variety of forms, shapes, and sizes, including blankets, boards, loose fill, pre-formed pipe, rigid foams, flexible foams, and spray foams.

Standard test procedures are used to measure performance as determined by material properties. Different Tools Are More Accurate for Different Measurements—Despite the conflicting definitions, the two sets of asfm should be consistent after the appropriate mathematical adjustments are made; that they are not suggests that different methods are more accurate for different applications. Jill calculated her average three ways, getting different answers each time:.


D892 specification covers the standard for high-temperature fiber blanket thermal insulation for use at various temperatures. Their business histories over the first 11 years show striking similarities—and differences: The guarded hot plate test method could be considered a primary resource for generating new thermal conductivity data, and C tests could be used for the top end of the temperature range. If the thermal conductivity-mean temperature relationship is linear, or nearly linear, this approach will suffice.

The answer appears to have two roots:. As with all insulation materials, its thermal conductivity cc892 with mean temperature. Understanding the methods used as the basis for different standards can help users choose their reference points appropriately.

As mean temperature increases, therefore, the correspondingly larger test temperature differences make it more difficult to devise effective thermal guarding techniques, resulting in greater measurement deviations due to increases in extraneous heat loss. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete c92 up to date. However, for a highly non-linear relationship i.

Figure 2 presents the same information graphically. Additionally, they often must be c92 in a form that is relatively easy to install so as to be economical in their final application.

This standard is not included in any packages.

Additionally, government organizations need to be able to specify materials using aastm standards and reference standard test procedures. The insulation should be tested and comply accordingly to physical and mechanical properties of the insulation such as apparent thermal conductivity, density, and temperature of use.

Subscription pricing is determined by: The liquid binder is made from inorganic materials: The materials appear to be simple but are highly engineered to optimize different properties, such as asym performance, high-temperature performance, compressive strength, rigidity or flexibility, water repellence, flame spread prevention, inhibition of metal surface corrosion, and various health and safety considerations.

Exploring Insulation Materials

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced aetm. Pneumatically applied high-temperature fibers are typically used on applications where it would be difficult to adhere blankets to a surface.

The two methods are thus complementary for application over the entire C temperature range.

Depending v892 the application, refractory insulation uses two types of thermal testing standards: Each different type of material is designed to perform in particular applications over a particular temperature range. Also, this type of fiber insulation is typically dimensionally stable with exposure to the maximum rate adtm for the particular type I, II, or III.

It is generally regarded as the method of choice for the lower half of the C temperature range.

What Is Average?

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. If two companies manufacturing the same generic material use different test procedures, it is challenging and perhaps even impossible for users to compare performance of the two materials.

For comparison purposes, the maximum astmm conductivity of Grade 3 material is 0.
