ASTM D3466 - 06(2018) - Standard Test Method for Ignition Temperature of Granular Activated Carbon

ASTM D3466 - 06(2018)

Standard Test Method for Ignition Temperature of Granular Activated Carbon

Status : Current   Published : June 2018



1.1 This test method covers the determination of reference ignition temperature of granular activated carbon in flowing air. This test method provides a basis for comparing the ignition characteristics of different carbons, or the change in ignition characteristics of the same carbon after a period of service.

1.2 The ignition temperature, as determined by this test method, cannot be interpreted as the probable ignition temperature of the same carbon under the operating conditions of a specific application unless those conditions are essentially the same as those in this test method. 2 If it is desired to determine the ignition temperature of the carbon under a specific set of operating conditions, the test may be modified to simulate such conditions, taking into consideration the following variables: ( 1) air flow rate; ( 2) moisture content of the carbon; ( 3) bed depth; ( 4) relative humidity of the air stream; ( 5) heating rate; ( 6) contaminants (for example, hydrocarbons, etc.) in the air stream; and ( 7) contaminants that may have been adsorbed by the carbon under prior service conditions.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4  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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 7.

1.5  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
