ASTM WK40596

    New Test Method for The Analysis of Nickel Alloys by Spark Atomic Emission Spectrometry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E01.08 | Committee E01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1This method describes the spark atomic emission spectrometric analysis of nickel alloys, such as specified by committee B02, and having chemical compositions within the following limits: ElementApplication Range (Wt. %) Aluminum0.01-6.00 Boron0.01-0.10 Carbon0.01-0.15 Chromium0.01-33.00 Copper0.01-35.00 Cobalt0.01-20.00 Iron0.05-50.00 Magnesium0.01-0.020 Molybdenum0.01-30.0 Niobium0.01-6.0 Nickel25.00-100.0 Phosphorous0.001-0.025 Silicon0.01-1.50 Sulfur0.0001-0.01 Titanium 0.0001-6.0 Tungsten0.01-5.0 Vanadium0.0005-1.0 1.2The following elements may be determined using this method. ElementQuantification Range (%) Aluminum0.0XX-0.XXX Boron0.XXX-0.0XXX Calcium0.XXX-0.00XX Cobalt0.00X-0.XXX Magnesium0.XXX-0.0XXX Tin0.XXX-0.01XX Silver0.XXX-0.001X Phosphorous0.XXX-0.02XX Silicon0.XXX-0.XXX

    There is currently no standard test method scoped for analysis of nickel alloys. The method will primarily be used for testing scoped elements in nickel alloys for the purpose of determining compliance to material specifications. Typical users will be supplier, customer and contract testing laboratories testing nickel alloys.
