Significance and Use
5.1 The practice for taking a sample of molten metal during production and producing a chill cast disk, used in conjunction with the following appropriate quantitative spark atomic emission spectrochemical methods, Test Methods and , is suitable for use in manufacturing control or certifying, or both, that the entire lot of alloy sampled meets established composition limits.
5.2 The practice for melting a piece of a product to produce a chill cast disk analyzed in conjunction with the following appropriate quantitative spark atomic emission spectrochemical methods, Test Methods and , is suitable, if a representative sample is taken, for determining if the piece sampled meets Aluminum Association composition limits.
5.3 The practice for direct analysis of product is suitable for determining an approximate composition of the piece analyzed.
1.1 These practices describe procedures for producing a chill cast disk sample from molten aluminum during the production process, and from molten metal produced by melting pieces cut from products.
1.2 These practices describe a procedure for obtaining qualitative results by direct analysis of product using spark atomic emission spectrometry.
1.3 These practices describe procedures for preparation of samples and products prior to analysis.
