Standard Practice for Microwave Digestion of Industrial Furnace Feed Streams and Waste for Trace Element Analysis
|Keywords:||cement; coal; coke; microwave digestion; trace elements; trace metals; waste; waste-derived fuel;|
1.1 This practice describes the multi-stage microwave digestion of typical industrial furnace feed stream materials using nitric, hydrofluoric, hydrochloric, and boric acids for the subsequent determination of trace metals.
1.2 This practice has been used successfully on samples of coal, coke, cement raw feed materials, and waste-derived fuels composed primarily of waste paint-related material in preparation for measuring the following trace elements: Ag, As, Ba, Be, Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb, Sb, and Tl. This practice may be applicable to elements not listed above.
1.3 This practice is also effective for other waste materials (for example, fly ash, foundry sand, alum process residue, cement kiln dust, etc.).
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Other units of measurement in parentheses in this standard are informational.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in Section .
1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
