This standard BS 7020-3:1988 Analysis of iron ores is classified in these ICS categories:
- 73.060.10 Iron ores
This International Standard specifies a titrimetric method for the determination of the combined water content of iron ores, using Karl Fischer solution.
This method is applicable to a concentration range of 0,05 to 10 % (m/m) of combined water in natural iron ores, and iron ore concentrates and agglomerates including sinter products.
NOTE The term “combined water means that part of the water content of an iron ore that can be removed only at temperatures substantially higher than 100 to 110 °C.
Applicable to combined water contents in the range 0.05 to 10% (m/m) in natural iron ores, and iron ore concentrates and agglomerates including sinter products.
