Standard Test Methods for Compatibility of Screening Analysis of Waste
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
1.1 These test methods cover assessment of the compatibility/reacti
|Test Method A-Commingled Waste Compatibility||8-12|
|Test Method B-Polymerization Potential (Reaction with|
|Test Method C-Water Compatibility||19-25|
1.2 These test methods are applicable to waste liquids, sludges, semi-solids, and solids.
1.3 These test methods are designed and intended as a preliminary or supplementary test to complement the more sophisticated quantitative analytical techniques that should be used to determine waste composition and compatibilities. This standard offers the user the option and the ability to screen wastes for potentially hazardous reactions when the more sophisticated techniques are not available and the total waste composition is unknown and to screen compatibility when the composition is known.
Note 1--Warning: Delayed or slow reactions of wastes may go unnoticed.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 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. For specific hazard statements, see Sections 10, 15, and 23 and Notes 1 and 2.
