Solid recovered fuels - Determination of moisture content using the oven dry method - Part 1: Determination of total moisture by a reference 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 by drying a sample in an oven. This method is suitable for use if a high precision of the determination of moisture content is required. It is applicable to all solid recovered fuels.
NOTE 1 The total moisture content of solid 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 recovered materials can be misleading since solid recovered materials, e.g. biomass, frequently contains varying amounts of volatile compounds (extractives) which can evaporate when determining moisture content by oven drying.
NOTE 3 This Technical Specification is based on prEN 14774-1 .
