Emergency Standard Practice for Hot Plate Digestion of Dust Wipe Samples for Determination of Lead by Atomic Spectrometry
|Publication Date:||15 January 1994|
1.1 This practice covers the acid digestion of settled dust samples (collected using wipe sampling practices) and associated quality control (QC) samples for the determination of lead using laboratory atomic spectrometry analysis techniques such as inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS), and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS).
1.2 This practice is based on U.S. EPA SW846 Method 3050, NIOSH 70824 and NIOSH 7105.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
