This part of ISO 8655 specifies alternative measurement procedures for the determination of volume of piston-operated volumetric apparatus.
The tests are applicable to complete systems comprising the basic apparatus and all parts selected for use with the apparatus, disposable or reusable, involved in the measurement by delivery process (Ex). Methods described in this part of ISO 8655 are suitable for various maximum nominal volumes of piston-operated volumetric apparatus. The user of this standard shall ensure that the selected method is suitable for its intended purpose.
NOTE General requirements and definitions of terms for piston-operated volumetric apparatus are given in ISO 8655-1. For the metrological requirements, maximum permissible errors, requirements for marking and information to be provided for users for piston-operated volumetric apparatus, see ISO 8655-2 for pipettes, see ISO 8655-3 for burettes, see ISO 8655-4 for dilutors, see ISO 8655-5 for dispensers, and see ISO 8655-9 for manually operated precision laboratory syringes. The gravimetric reference measurement procedure for the determination of volume is given in ISO 8655-6. The photometric reference measurement procedure for the determination of volume is given in ISO 8655-8.
