Standard Test Method for Gross Calorific and Ash Value of Waste Materials (Withdrawn 2016)


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the gross calorific value of waste materials by either an isoperibol, aneroid, air-jacketed isoperibol, or adiabatic bomb calorimeter using electronic temperature sensors, automatic calorimeter controllers, and subsequent analysis of the residue for ash. After calorific analysis, the bomb washings may be collected for subsequent elemental analysis.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are regarded as the standard.

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.
