Significance and Use
This test method is a procedure by which catalyst samples may be compared on an inter- or intra-laboratory basis. Catalyst producers and user should find this test method to be of value.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of nickel and vanadium in equilibrium catalysts where the vanadium and nickel concentrations are greater than 50 and 25 mg/kg, respectively.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
