ASTM D2492 - 02(2012) - Standard Test Method for Forms of Sulfur in Coal

ASTM D2492 - 02(2012)

Standard Test Method for Forms of Sulfur in Coal

Status : Current   Published : January 2012



1.1 This test method applies to the determination of sulfate sulfur and pyritic sulfur in coal and calculates organic sulfur by difference. This test method is not applicable to coke or other carbonaceous materials. Monosulfides (pyrites and FeS 2 are disulfides) of iron and elements such as cadmium, lead, vanadium, and zinc can be present in coal. In the range of 0 to 100 ppm, these monosulfides do not contribute significantly to the total inorganic sulfide content.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as 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.
