Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 12 November 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 26
ICS Code (Examination of physical properties of water): 13.060.60
ICS Code (Radiation protection): 13.280
scope:

This part of ISO 13166 specifies the conditions for the determination of uranium isotope activity concentration in samples of environmental water (including sea waters) using alpha-spectrometry and 232U as a yield tracer. A chemical separation is required to separate and purify uranium from a test portion of the sample.

Plutonium isotopes can interfere, if present, with detectable activities in the sample.

The detection limit for measurement of a test portion of about 500 ml is approximately 5 mBq · l−1 with a counting time of about 200 000 s.
