ASTM WK25064

    New Practice for the Performance Evaluation of the Portable X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer for the Measurement of Lead in Paint Films

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.23 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This practice covers portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments intended for the measurement of lead in paint. It is intended that manufacturers apply this practice to one unit of a particular model of an instrument when that model is initially available. Replicate tests on additional units of the same model of an instrument are to be performed at the discretion of the manufacturer. This practice also is intended for use by third parties performing independent evaluation of portable x-ray fluorescence instruments.

    Reinstatement of withdrawn E2120. Useful to XRF equipment manufacturers and independent evaluators in evaluating instrument performance.
