Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
The standards are available to producers and users of RDF for determining the total sulfur content of the fuel.
1.1 These test methods cover two alternative procedures for the determination of total sulfur in prepared analysis samples of solid forms of refuse-derived fuel (RDF). Sulfur is included in the ultimate analysis of RDF.
1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:
|Bomb Washing Method||12 and 13|
1.3 These test methods may be applicable to any waste material from which a laboratory analysis sample can be prepared.
1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.5 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. For specific precautionary statements see Section 6.
