D 1691 - 59 T Tentative Method of Test for Zinc in Industrial Water and Industrial Waste Water


(a) This method covers the colorimetric determination of zinc in industrial water and industrial waste water. Interferences from many metals are eliminated or minimized in this method.

Total zinc will be determined if insoluble zinc compounds are solubilized by acid treatment as given in Note 2. Dissolved zinc is determined on a filtered sample.
