Standard Test Method for Analysis of High Manganese Steel Using Atomic Emission Spectrometry
|Publication Date:||10 May 2002|
|ICS Code (Chemical analysis of metals):||77.040.30|
1.1 This method provides for the analysis of high manganese steel by atomic emission spectrometry using the point-to-plane technique for the following elements in the concentration ranges shown:
|Elements||Concentration Range, %|
|Aluminum (Al)||0.02 to 0.15|
|Carbon (C)||0.3 to 1.4|
|Chromium (Cr)||0.25 to 2.00|
|Manganese (Mn)||8.0 to 16.2|
|Molybdenum (Mo)||0.03 to 2.0|
|Nickel (Ni)||0.05 to 4.0|
|Phosphorus (P)||0.025 to 0.06|
|Silicon (Si)||0.25 to 1.5|
Note 1-The ranges represent the actual levels at which this method was tested. These concentration ranges can be extended to higher concentrations by the use of suitable reference materials. Sulfur is not included because differences in results between laboratories exceeded acceptable limits at all analyte levels.
1.2 This test method may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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.
