    Significance and Use

    This test method sets forth a procedure by which catalyst samples can be compared either on an interlaboratory or intralaboratory basis. It is anticipated that catalyst producers and users will find this method of value.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of nickel in fresh alumina-base catalysts and has been tested at nickel concentrations from 2.5 to 60 weight %, expressed as nickel oxide (NiO).

    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 its use.
