Summary of Test Method 3. During combustion at temperatures above ? C, the sulfur and sulfur compounds contained in the sample are decomposed and oxidized almost exclusively to gaseous sulfur dioxide, SO2.
Moisture and particulates are removed from the gas by? The gas stream is passed through a cell in which sulfur dioxide is measured by an infrared IR absorption detector.
Sulfur dioxide absorbs IR energy at a precise wavelength within the IR spectrum. Energy is absorbed as the gas passes through the cell body in which the IR energy is being transmitted: All other IR energy is eliminated from reaching the detector by a precise wavelength? Thus, the absorption of IR energy can be attributed only to sulfur dioxide whose concentration is proportional to the change in energy at the detector.
One cell is used as both a reference and a measurement chamber. Total sulfur as sulfur dioxide is detected on a continuous basis.
Sulfur is oxidized during the reaction of the sample and WO3. Moisture and particulates are removed from the combustion gas by? The gas stream is then passed through a cell in which sulfur dioxide is measured axtm an infrared IR absorption detector. Energy is absorbed as the gas passes through the cell body in 3 Available from International Organization for Standardization ISO1, ch. Current edition approved Feb.

Use at least three such reference materials, for each range of sulfur values to be tested. Select one reference material containing at least qstm much sulfur as the highest level of sulfur expected.

Select two additional reference ast, one approximately at the mid-point of the range and one below the lowest level of sulfur expected. Use a material with a sulfur value near the mid point of the expected calibration range. Use a mass of material and the calibration procedure recommended by the apparatus manufacturer. Weigh to at least the nearest 1 mg and evenly spread the test portion of the reference material into the sample combustion boat 6. Position the sample in the hot zone of the furnace until the instrument returns to baseline as indicated according to settings recommended by the manufacturer.
If the analysis time exceeds the maximum analysis time recommended by the manufacturer take corrective action as recommended by the manufacturer.
Verify the instrument calibration prior to analyzing test samples, upon completion of all test samples and as needed to meet quality control requirements.
