The standard test methods for the analysis of hydrochloric acid are covered under the ASTM E224-08 standard method. These test methods provide for the classiﬁcation of various grades of hydrochloric acid and for the determination of various impurities. The values reported are in SI units.
ASTM E224-08 standard method covers the procedures for analysis of hydrochloric acid. The analytical procedures included in this standard are as follows:
8 to 16
17 to 26
27 to 34
35 to 44
45 to 52
53 to 59
Total acidity determination: A weighed sample of acid is diluted in water and titrated with standardized 0.5 meq/mL (N) sodium hydroxide solution, using phenolphthalein as the indicator.
Baumé Gravity determination: A sample of hydrochloric acid is placed in a hydrometer cylinder and when the temperature is constant, the Baumé gravity is read from the glass hydrometer. The Baumé gravity is used to classify various grades of hydrochloric acid.
Sulfated ash content determination: A weighed sample of acid, to which sulfuric acid has been added, is evaporated, ignited, and the residue weighed.
Iron content determination: The iron is reduced and determined calorimetrically with 1,10-phenanthroline (ortho-phenanthroline), which forms an orange-red complex with ferrous iron. The intensity of the colour is measured in a photometer calibrated against standardized solutions.
Colour determination: An arbitrary colour scale is used that is based on the colour produced by adding known amounts of ferric iron to hydrochloric acid.
Total Sulfur content determination: A sample of acid is treated with bromine to oxidize any oxidizable sulfur compounds to sulfate. The sulfate is precipitated and weighed as barium sulfate.
The size of the sample shall be sufficient to perform all analyses without the reuse of any portion of the sample.
The calculations for the analytical procedures are as follows,
V= corrected mL of NaOH solution required for titration of the sample, N= normality of NaOH solution, W= sample used
The Platinum-Cobalt colour scale has wide-spread use to determine colour of HCl.
M= iron found from calibration curve
R= weight of evaporating dish and residue, D= weight of evaporating dish, W= sample used
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
