Standard Test Method for Volatile Matter in the Analysis of Particulate Wood Fuels
|Publication Date:||28 May 1982|
|ICS Code (Solid fuels):||75.160.10|
This test method determines the percentage of gaseous products, exclusive of moisture vapor, in the analysis sample of particulate wood fuel that is released under the specific conditions of the test. The particulate wood fuel may be sanderdust, sawdust, pellets, green tree chips, hogged fuel, or other type particulate wood fuel having a maximum particle volume of 16.39 cm3 (1 in.3). Volatile matter, when determined as herein described, may be used to indicate yields on processes to provide the basis for purchasing and selling or to establish burning characteristics.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
