Adjust the reflux rate to match the rate of percolation through the sand and silica beds until water removal lessens the restriction to toluene flow. The method of reducing particle size to less than 1 mm is matrix-dependent. Aqueous samples that flow freely are collected in mtehod bottles using automatic I sampling equipment.
Summit Environmental Testing | EPA METHOD B
Place 30 to 40 mL of toluene in the receiver and to mL of toluene in the flask. These procedures are described in Sections Maintain a head pressure of 7 to 10 psig.
All specifications are given as concentration in the final extract, assuming a nL volume. Alumina and Florisil are used to remove chlorodiphenyl ethers. Proceed with micro-concentration and solvent exchange Section This solution is diluted with acetone prior to use Section 7.
EPA Method 1613B
If an emulsion forms, the analyst must employ mechanical techniques to complete the phase separation. When whole fish analysis is necessary, the entire fish is homogenized. The other terms are defined in Section If all compounds meet the acceptance criteria, epq has been verified and analysis of standards and sample extracts may proceed. Chlorothene, then washing with any detergent and water. The filtration procedure is followed by SDS extraction of the filter and particles Section Drain each portion through the sodium sulfate into the concentrator.
Details available from the U. Procedures for dilution are given in Section If more than mg of material remains, repeat the cleanup using a fresh anthropogenic isolation column. After the third extraction, rinse the separatory funnel with at least 20 mL of methylene chloride, and metbod this rinse through the sodium sulfate into the concentrator. Glassware with removable parts, particularly separatory funnels with fluoropolymer stopcocks, must be disassembled prior 1613v detergent washing.
Persons who convey the bags and launder the clothing should be advised of the hazard and trained in proper handling. Remove any non-aqueous liquid present and reserve the maximum amount filtered from the sample Section The Dean-Stark moisture trap may also be omitted, if desired. Collect the fraction s in a clean methoe concentrator tube containing 5 mL of hexane: Stir for 2 to 3 hours.
Under those conditions, sensitivity changes that might occur during the analysis can be more effectively monitored. Set aside the funnel with sodium sulfate if the extract is to be combined with the extract from the particles. Prewet the column by adding approximately 0. Repeat the acid washing until no color is visible in the aqueous layer, to a maximum of four washings.
Any non-aqueous liquid from multi-phase samples is combined with the solids and extracted in an SDS extractor. Corrective actions must be implemented whenever the resolving power does not meet the requirement.
The extract is concentrated for cleanup. Compute the relative response RR at each concentration. If the flow rate of eluate exceeds 0.
