Standard Practice for Collection and Preparation of Coke Samples for Laboratory Analysis

Significance and Use

This practice may be used to provide a representative sample of the coke from which it is collected. Because of the variability of coke and the wide variety of sampling equipment, caution must be exercised in all stages of sampling, from system specifications and equipment procurement to equipment acceptance testing and actually taking the final sample.

This practice also provides an analysis sample of coke from the gross or divided sample. The analysis samples can be used to determine the value of the coke represented, its ability to meet specifications, as well as for other purposes.

Scope

1.1 This practice covers procedures for the collection and reduction of samples of coke to be used for physical tests, chemical analyses, and the determination of total moisture.

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

1.3 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns 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.
