Press Release Summary:
ANSI/ASAE AD5687:1999, Equipment for harvesting — Combine harvesters — determination and designation of grain tank capacity and unloading device performance, replaces ISO 5687:1999, which was without deviations. Revised adoption clarifies standard by removing all subjectivity from testing procedure. Deviations now include additional bounds on test parameters to improve test repeatability, with goal of achieving greater reliability and consistency of reported results regardless of facilitator.
Original Press Release:
ASABE Revises Combine Harvester ISO Standard Adoption
ST JOSEPH, MICHIGAN — The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its previous adoption of an international standard, ISO 5687:1999, Equipment for harvesting — Combine harvesters — determination and designation of grain tank capacity and unloading device performance.
The new standard, ANSI/ASAE AD5687:1999, Equipment for harvesting — Combine harvesters — determination and designation of grain tank capacity and unloading device performance, replaces the previous adoption, which was without deviations, to one with specific technical deviations. The revised adoption clarifies the standard by removing all subjectivity from the testing procedure. The deviations include additional bounds on test parameters to improve test repeatability and robustness, with the goal of achieving greater reliability and consistency of the reported results regardless of facilitator.
ASABE members with standards access and those with site-license privileges can access the full-text via electronic download on the ASABE online Technical Library at elibrary.asabe.org/. Others can obtain a copy for a fee directly from the library or by contacting ASABE headquarters at email@example.com.
