Solid recovered fuels - Determination of moisture content using the oven dry method - Part 2: Determination of total moisture content by a simplified method
|Publication Date:||1 June 2010|
|ICS Code (Solid fuels):||75.160.10|
This Technical Specification specifies a method for the determination of total moisture content of solid recovered fuels (SRF) by drying a sample in an oven. This method is suitable for use for routine production control on site, e.g. if a high precision of the determination of moisture content is not required. It is applicable to all solid recovered fuels.
NOTE 1 The total moisture content of recovered fuels is not an absolute value and therefore standardised conditions for its determination are indispensable to enable comparative determinations.
NOTE 2 The term moisture content when used with SRF can be misleading since these materials often contain varying amounts of volatile compounds (extractives) which can evaporate if determining moisture content by oven drying.
NOTE 3 This Technical Specification is based on EN 14774-2.
