Standard Test Methods for Loss on Ignition (LOI) of Solid Combustion Residues
|Publication Date:||1 May 2007|
|ICS Code (Internal combustion engines):||27.020|
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the mass loss from solid combustion residues upon heating in an air or oxygen atmosphere to a prescribed temperature. The mass loss can be due to the loss of moisture, carbon, sulfur, and so forth, from the decomposition or combustion of the residue.
1.2 The values given in SI units are to be considered as the standard.
1.3 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.
