    Significance and Use

    This test method was developed for the determination of bromine chloride in liquid chlorine. Bromide is a common contaminant in all salt sources that are used in the production of chlorine. This bromide content of the salt is converted into bromine chloride in the liquid chlorine product. This test method is sensitive enough to measure the levels of bromine chloride observed in normal production chlorine.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method uses high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to determine bromine chloride levels in liquid chlorine at the 10 to 1400 g/g (ppm) range.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 Review the current material safety data sheet (MSDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, and safety precautions.

    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 8.
