Revision of D6646-03(2014) Standard Test Method for Determination of the Accelerated Hydrogen Sulfide Breakthrough Capacity of Granular and Pelletized Activated Carbon


Data from outside laboratories on the new high capacity carbons is extremely inconsistent and it has been stated in the Precision and Bias statements that high capacity carbons show a higher deviation. This work was done prior to the invention of the current high capacity carbons. It was also noted that laboratories are running the test in various manners which yields varying results.
