Active Standard ASTM D6969 | Developed by Subcommittee: D02.05
Book of Standards Volume: 05.03
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
This practice provides field personnel and laboratories with standard procedures for dividing, reducing, and mixing gross samples and intermediate samples, such that the resulting prepared analysis samples are more uniform from laboratory to laboratory. Adherence to these guidelines is expected to provide significant reduction in interlaboratory variability.
1.1 This practice covers the preparation procedures necessary for the reduction and division of calcined petroleum coke samples in order to generate appropriate analytical samples upon which physical and chemical analytical tests will be performed.
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.
