These test methods cover two alternative procedures for the determination of total sulfur in samples of coal and coke. Sulfur is included in the ultimate analysis of coal and coke. Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D05 on Coal and Coke, these test methods were withdrawn in December 2012 and replaced by D4239 Test Method for Sulfur in the Analysis Sample of Coal and Coke Using High Temperature Tube Furnace Combustion.
1.1 These test methods cover two alternative procedures for the determination of total sulfur in samples of coal and coke. Sulfur is included in the ultimate analysis of coal and coke.
1.2 The procedures appear in the following order:
|Method A—Eschka Method||6-9|
|Method B—Bomb Washing Method||10 and 11|
