Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editions as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edition, and any amendments thereto. Full details of all Australian Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine ‘The Australian Standard’, which subscribing members receive, and which gives details of new publications, new editions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggestions for improvements to Australian Standards, addressed to the head office of Standards Australia, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

PREFACE

This Standard was prepared by Standards Australia Committee CH/30 on Temperature Measurement to supersede AS 1006—1971.

This Standard is identical with and has been reproduced from ISO 1770-1981, Solid-stem general purpose thermometers and ISO 1770-1981 Amendment 1, published 1983-08-01, which were reconfirmed in 1992. The text affected by the Amendment is marked in the ISO document with double marginal bars.

The objective of this Standard is to provide designers and manufacturers with requirements for liquid-in- glass solid-stem general purpose thermometers.

For the purpose of this Standard, the text of ISO 1770 should be modified as follows:

(a)

Terminology

The words ‘this Australian Standard’ should replace the words ‘this International

Standard’ wherever they appear.

(b)

Decimal marker

Substitute a point (.) for a comma (,) wherever it appears as a decimal marker.

AUSTRALIAN STANDARD

Solid-stem general purpose thermometers

0

Introduction

Although the thermometers covered by this International Standard are not intended for use in any specific test method, the overall lengths of the series of higher accuracy are specified with a tolerance so as to provide a degree of interchangeability for any special apparatus into which the thermometers are incorporated.

For ease of reference, each thermometer has been allocated a designation consisting of a single letter representing the range of the thermometer and the indication ”TOTAL” or, for example, ”75” relating to the intended immersion.

Some of the thermometers described in the scope and field of application of this International Standard, and which are in current use, are of a lower quality than those strictly covered in ISO 386. Accordingly, whilst this International Standard is based on the provisions of ISO 386, it does not align with those which recommend the distance between consecutive scale lines to be greater than 0,8 mm and the maximum error to be one scale division. In order to avoid increasing the cost of the thermometers, some of the dimensions recommended to be specified in ISO 386 have also been omitted.

1 Scope and field of application

This International Standard specifies requirements for two series of inexpensive ”commercial quality” liquid-in-glass thermometers of the solid-stem type suitable for general purpose use in industry, schools and laboratories when great accuracy of measurement is not required:

a) a series designated A to H, in which nominal

ranges and maximum overall lengths are specified but which may not be acceptable for testing by a national verification laboratory;

b) a series designated J to W of greater accuracy

than

in

a)

and

with

specified

ranges

and

a

tolerance

on

overall

length,

which

may

be

acceptable for testing by a national verification laboratory.

The temperature range covered by each series is from 100 °C to +500 °C.

2

Reference

ISO 386, Liquid-in-glass laboratory thermometers — Principles of design, construction and use.

3 Temperature scale

The thermometers shall be graduated in accordance with the Celsius scale as defined in the current definition of the International Practical Temperature Scale (IPTS) adopted by the Conference generale des poids et mesures, and in accordance with the International System of Units (SI).

4

Immersion

4.1

The thermometers shall be adjusted for use either

at total immersion (i.e. the reading shall be correct when the thermometer is immersed so that the top of the liquid column is in the same plane as, or no more than two scale divisions above, the surface of the medium the temperature of which is required to be measured), or for partial immersion, as required.

4.2 In the latter case, the preferred immersion is 75 ±1 mm, and the adjustment of such a thermometer shall be carried out at the average emergent liquid column temperature detailed in tables 1 and 2.

NOTES

1 Adjustment at partial immersion is not permitted for the

thermometers with a scale extending below -38 °C, because of the large errors likely to be caused in a spirit-in- glass

thermometer by variations in temperature around the emergent portion of the stem.

2 For guidance on the determination of the emergent liquid

column corrections to be applied when the thermometer is used in situations where the average emergent liquid column temperature differs from that given in tables 1 and 2. see annex B.6 and B.7 of ISO 336.

5 Glass

The thermometer bulb shall be made of suitable thermometric glass. 1) The glass or glasses comprising the thermometer shall be selected and processed so that the finished thermometer shows the following characteristics.
