Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the determination of approximate mass loss due to valve seepage rate2 of aerosol products by the collection and measurement of gases seeping through the valve and into a special eudiometer tube, over a relatively short time period.

It can be shown that the average refrigeration-filled aerosol product seeps to the extent of approximately 3.0 mL when the corresponding mass loss is 0.10 oz (2.9 cm3)/year. This figure is partially based on air content and is subject to variations according to filling conditions. This test method is not considered dependable when applied to pressure-filled, unpurged aerosol products.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered 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.

2 Data on the theoretical development of seepage concepts has been filed at ASTM Headquarters as RR:D10-1000.
