ASTM International - ASTM G144-96
Standard Test Method for Determination of Residual Contamination of Materials and Components by Total Carbon Analysis Using a High-Temperature Combustion Analyzer
|Publication Date:||10 September 2001|
|ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis):||71.040.50|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of residual contamination in an aqueous sample by the use of a total carbon ( TC) analyzer. When used in conjunction with Practice G 131 and G 136, this procedure may be used to determine the cleanliness of systems, components, and materials requiring a high level of cleanliness, such as oxygen systems. This procedure is applicable for aqueous-based cleaning and sampling methods only.
1.2 This test method is not suitable for the evaluation of particulate contamination, or contaminants that are not soluble in or that do not form an emulsion with water.
1.3 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.
