All analyses start with some form of sample preparation and homogenization of a proportionate sample. Many approaches exist between mechanical grinding, ball mills (wet and dry grinding) and cryogenic grinding of the sample for testing purposes. In addition many different devices and equipment can be used with the resulting sample consistency varying based on the approach taken.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
