    Significance and Use

    The establishment of these test methods for municipal ferrous scrap as a raw material for certain industries (see Specification E702) will aid commerce in such scrap by providing the chemical and physical tests for the characterization of the scrap needed as a basis for communication between the purchaser and supplier.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover various tests for assessing the usefulness of a ferrous fraction recovered from municipal wastes.

    1.2 These test methods comprise both chemical and physical tests, as follows:

    Section
    Sampling 5
    Bulk Density 6
    Total Combustibles 7
    Chemical Analysis (for Industries Other Than the
    Detinning Industry)
    8
    Magnetic Fraction (for the Detinning Industry) 9
    Chemical Analysis for Tin (for the Detinning Industry)10
    Metallic Yield for All Industries Other Than the Copper
    Industry and the Detinning Industry
    11

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    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.
