Standard Test Method for Total Moisture of Hazardous Waste Fuel by Karl Fischer Titrimetry


1.1 This test method covers the determination by Karl Fischer (KF) titrimetry of total moisture in solid or liquid hazardous waste fuels used by industrial furnaces.

1.2 This test method has been used successfully on numerous samples of hazardous waste fuel composed of solvents, spent oils, paints, and pigments. The expected range of applicability for this test method is between 1.0 and 100%; however, this evaluation was limited to samples containing approximately 5 to 50% water.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

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.
