Standard Test Method for Conductimetric Analysis of Water Soluble Ionic Contamination of Blasting Abrasives
|Publication Date:||10 May 1998|
1.1 This test method describes a procedure for rapid evaluation of abrasives for the presence of ionic contamination by determining the total concentration of water soluble ionic contaminants by means of a conductivity test.
1.2 This test method does not identify the ionic species present nor provide quantitative results on each species.
1.3 This test method is based on a volume comparison among abrasives of similar sizes. A volume comparison is more closely related to surface area of the abrasives than is a weight comparison.
1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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.
