ASTM WK36051

    Revision of D5173 - 97(2007) Standard Test Method for On-Line Monitoring of Carbon Compounds in Water by Chemical Oxidation, by UV Light Oxidation, by Both, or by High Temperature Combustion Followed by Gas Phase NDIR or by Electrolytic Conductivity

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5173 - 97(2007)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D19.03 | Committee D19 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Rationale: Title changed to electrical conductivity to be consistent with the D1125 conductivity method used in TOC measurement techniques included here. 1.Scopereformatted into tabular form for easy identification of oxidation techniques. Ranges changed to include current instrument capabilities. 2.Referenced documentseliminated D4779 which has been withdrawn. 3.Terminologyelectrical conductivity added to be consistent with D1125 conductivity method. 4,5 Miscellaneous changes for clarification; interference covered in section 6. 6. Interferencesclarified for the various oxidation and detection techniques. 8. Reagents and materialsupdated to describe current pure water availability and cleaning techniques. 11. Calibration and Proceduremiscellaneous changes for clarification. 13. New quality control section required for D19 standards. Figuresretitled for clarity and identification in Table 1 and updated notes to reflect current instrument operation.
