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 - 15

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


    1. Rationale

    Rationale: The work item for this On-Line TOC standard has gone through extensive revisions, resolving negative votes at main committee level over several years. However, consensus was finally reached at the June 2014 meeting that it should become a Guide rather than a Test Method due to the diversity of measurement techniques included. Accordingly, the latest draft makes the conversion and only those revisions that change it from a Test Method to a Guide are shown in marked-up.
