This test method is available to producers and users of RDF as a means of determining thermal characteristics of a large sample of RDF without extensive processing of the laboratory sample. It is intended that the results obtained be used to monitor changes in the fuel characteristics of RDF over a period of time.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of moisture, noncombustibles and combustibles, and the calculation of higher heating value content of a large mass of refuse-derived fuel-three (RDF).
1.2 This test method may be applicable to any waste material, including residues from combustion, from which a representative sample can be prepared.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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. See Section 7 for additional hazard information.
