When not being used, standards are stored in the dark at room temperature in screw-capped vials with fluoropolymer-lined caps. Compare the computed ratio methd the theoretical ratio given in Table 9. Corrective actions must be implemented whenever the resolving power does not meet the requirement.
Allow the sample to equilibrate for 1 to 2 hours, with occasional shaking.
For aqueous samples containing greater than one percent! It is equivalent to the concentration of the lowest calibration standard, assuming that all method-specified sample weights, volumes, and cleanup procedures have been employed. This will assist the laboratory in tracking possible sources of contamination for individual samples, identifying glassware associated with highly contaminated samples that may require extra cleaning, and determining when glassware should be discarded.
EPA Method 1613B
Place the round-bottom flask in a heating mantle, and apply heat as required eepa complete the concentration in 15 to 20 minutes. It is also suggested that the laboratory perform personal hygiene monitoring of each analyst who uses this method and that the results of this monitoring be made available to the analyst.
If interferences preclude identification, a new aliquot of sample must be extracted, further cleaned up, and analyzed. Dilute 10 uL of the precision and recovery I standard Section 7. The extract is evaporated to dryness, and the lipid content is determined.
Remove the Snyder column and rinse the glass joint into the receiver with small portions of solvent. Some extracts will not concentrate to 10 uL Section All sample processing steps that are to be used for processing samples, including preparation Section 11 e;a, extraction Section 12and cleanup Section 13shall be 1613g in this test.
Store in a bottle with a fluoropolymer-lined screw-cap. The elution pattern will be corn oil, bis 2-ethyl hexyl phthalate, pentachlorophenol, perylene, and sulfur. A reference file of material safety data sheets MSDSs should also be 1613bb available to all personnel involved in these analyses.
After the third extraction, rinse the separatory funnel with at least 20 mL of methylene chloride, and drain this rinse through the sodium sulfate into the concentrator. A large vortex in the solvent may cause analyte loss. Open the stopcock until the extract is within 1 mm of the alumina.
Proceed with column cleanups Sections Store in a dessicator. Janitors and other personnel must be trained in the safe handling of waste. Save the bottle for further use.
Softer particles can be reduced by grinding in a Wiley mill or meat grinder, by homogenization, or in a blender. May be prepared by extraction with methylene chloride.
In this event, correct the problem, re-prepare, extract, and clean up the sample batch and repeat the ongoing precision and recovery test Section GC retention time window defining solution and isomer specificity test standard Used to define i the beginning and ending retention times for the dioxin and furan isorners and to demonstrate isomer specificity of the GC columns employed for determination of 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8- I TCDF.
Optimize GC conditions for compound separation and sensitivity. CS, January 15, A secondary containment system around the shaker is suggested to prevent the spread of acid and solvents in the event of such a breakage.
Gel permeation chromatography Section Specification given as concentration in the final extract, assuming a ML volume. Re- concentrate the sample and QC aliquots per Sections In general, the samples must be in a liquid form or in the form of finely divided solids in order for efficient extraction to take place. Compliance is also required with any sewage discharge permits and regulations.
If, however, any individual s exceeds the precision limit or any individual X falls outside the range for accuracy, system performance is unacceptable for that compound. McCarty, and Lynn S.
Summit Environmental Testing | EPA METHOD B
Adjust the flow of nitrogen so that the surface of the solvent is just visibly disturbed. If an extract is to be reanalyzed and evaporation has occurred, do not add more instrument internal standard solution. Proceed with micro-concentration and solvent exchange Section If the recovery of any compound falls outside of these limits, method performance is unacceptable for metbod compound in that sample.
Paper industry methods suggest that the addition of nethod to mL of ethanol to a 1-L effluent sample may also reduce emulsion formation. The relative response RR labeled to native vs. For an alternative sample matrix, four aliquots of the alternative reference matrix Section 7.
Plastic bag liners should be used in waste cans. Check the column for channeling. Isomer-Specific Separation of 2,3,7,8? The other terms are defined in Section Set aside the funnel with sodium sulfate if the extract is to be combined with the extract from the particles.
