This test method covers the procedure for collection of a series of 20 gross samples for analyses.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, this test method was withdrawn in July 2011 without replacement because of limited use by industry in light of analogous standards for coal.
1.1 This test method covers the procedure for collection of a series of 20 gross samples for analyses. The results of analysis, when averaged, are deemed representative of the lot or a production stream for a 1-month period.
1.2 This test method may be used to determine fuel quality on other than a monthly basis if 20 gross samples are gathered, analyzed and averaged.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.
