A dynamic mode operation of emission chamber could be applied if corroborative information of the unit component emission between this method and small chamber method (ISO12219-4:2013) is desired.
The specified analytical procedure for VOCs (ISO 16000-6) is valid for the determination of VOCs ranging in concentration from sub-µg/m3 to several mg/m3. The method is applicable to the measurement of non-polar and slightly polar VOCs ranging in volatility from n-C6 to n-C16. Some very volatile compounds (VVOC) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) can also be analysed (see informative Annex D of ISO 16000-6:2011).
ISO 12219-5:2014 is complementary to existing standards and provides third party test laboratories and manufacturing industry with an approach for:
- comparing emissions from various unit components in assembly with regards to specific VOC emissions,
- evaluating and sorting specific unit components regarding specific VOC emissions data,
- providing specific VOC emissions data to develop and verify the correlation between a material-based method and an assembly-based method,
- evaluating prototype, low-emission unit components during development.
