Standard Test Methods for Chemical Analysis of Ferroniobium

Significance and Use

4.1 These test methods for the chemical analysis of ferroniobium alloy are primarily intended to test such materials for compliance with compositional specifications such as Specification A550. It is assumed that all who use these test methods will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory.

Scope

1.1 These test methods cover the chemical analysis of ferroniobium having chemical compositions within the following limits:

24 – 25

 

 

Tantalum by the Spectrophotometric Test Method [0.25 % to 1 %]

26 – 30

1.3 Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this 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 consult and establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 6, and specific warning statements in 11.1.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
