This test method describes a procedure for measuring the largest pore or hole in a filter or similar fluid-permeable porous structure. A standard referee test method for precise determination or resolution of disputes is specified. A simpler inspection test procedure for quality assurance “go-no-go” measurement is also given. Bubble-point testing physics, analysis of bubble-point test data, and correlation with other methods of pore size determination are separately discussed in the appendix.
Rationale: This revision corrects one technical and several editorial errors. The technical change is related to the testing temperature range and corrects paragraphs that previously contradicted each other.
