    Significance and Use

    5.1 The test method within this standard is used to demonstrate uranium ore-concentrate material meets the moisture specification defined in Specification C967 or other applicable requirements.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is used to determine compliance with Specification C967 for the requirements of moisture in uranium ore concentrates (UOC). A procedure is given to determine the approximate temperature for drying the UOC; normally 110°C but possibly 165°C for uranyl peroxides. The dried uranium ore-concentrate resulting from this procedure is then used for performing additional analyses described in Specification C967.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical equivalents that are provided for information only and are not considered 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.
