ASTM F111 1996 Edition, June 10, 1996
Standard Practice for Determining Barium Yield, Getter Gas Content, and Getter Sorption Capacity for Barium Flash Getters
Includes all amendments and changes through Reapproval Notice , 2002
Additional Comments: W/D NO S/S
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This practice describes techniques for the determination of evaporated barium yield, getter gas content, and getter carbon monoxide sorption capacity for barium flash getters used in electron devices. Test conditions are chosen to approximate use conditions.
Auxiliary procedures for cleaning, for determining vacuum system leak-up rates, for flashing getters, and for determining barium content in both getter fill and films are also given.
The various tests described are destructive in nature. In general the tests are semiquantitative but they can be expected to yield comparative information on a single-laboratory basis to the precision indicated. No information relative to multi-laboratory reproducibility is available.
List of Methods Described:
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 4.
