Testing of ceramic raw and basic materials - Direct determination of mass fractions of impurities in powders and granules of silicon carbide by OES by DC arc excitation

Status: Valid

Scope
This European Standard describes the method for the analysis of mass fractions of the impurities Al, B, Ca, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mg, Ni, Ti, V and Zr in powder- and grain-shaped silicon carbide of ceramic raw and basic materials. This application can also be extended to other metallic elements and other similar non-metallic powder- and grain-shaped materials such as carbides, nitrides, graphite, carbon blacks, cokes, carbon, as well as a number of further oxidic raw and basic materials after appropriate testing.

NOTE There are positive interferences for materials such as e.g. graphite, B4C, BN, WC and several refractory metal oxides.

This testing procedure is applicable to mass fractions of the impurities mentioned above from approximately 1 mg/kg up to approximately 3 000 mg/kg, after verification. In some cases it may be possible to extend the range up to 5 000 mg/kg depending on element, wavelength, arc parameter, and sample weight.
