This method provides sample preparation procedures for the determination of total recoverable analytes in groundwaters, surface waters, drinking waters, wastewaters, and, with the exception of 2000.2, in solid type samples such as sediments, sludges and soils.
Please call for availability. Solid and aqueous samples are prepared in a similar manner for analysis.

Environmental Protection Agency Report, Revision 2. Nitric and hydrochloric acids are dispensed into a beaker containing an accurately weighed or measured, well mixed, homogeneous aqueous or solid sample. Boron and silica from the glassware will grow into the sample solution during and following sample processing.
LEADING ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING LAB
Aqueous samples are first reduced in volume by gentle heating. Each laboratory determining total recoverable elements is required to spa a formal quality control QC program.
The laboratory is required to maintain performance records that define the quality of data generated. No warranty express or implied is made as to the website accuracy, completeness, or applicability such as the age of a method and whether or not it applies to your project.
Sample preparation procedure for spectrochemical determination of total recoverable elements. Sample preparation procedure for spectrochemical determination of total recoverable elements Summary: Chemical interferences are matrix dependent and cannot be documented previous to analysis.
Specific instructions on accomplishing the described aspects of the QC program are discussed in the analytical methods used. The minimum requirements of a QC program consist of an initial demonstration of laboratory capability, and the analysis of laboratory reagent blanks, fortified blanks and quality control samples as a continuing check on performance.
After extraction, 200. solubilzed analytes are diluted to specified volumes with ASTM Type I water, epaa and either centrifuged or allowed to settle overnight before analysis.
Then, metals and toxic elements are extracted from either solid samples or the undissolved portion of aqueous samples by covering the beaker with a watch glass and refluxing 200.
sample in the dilute acid mixture for 30 minutes. The work area, including bench top and fume hood, should be periodically cleaned in order to eliminate environmental contamination.
A series of laboratory reagent blanks can be used to monitor and indicate the contamination effect. Method information displayed rpa provided for informational purposes only.
When quartz beakers are not available for extraction of solid samples, to reduce boron contamination, immediately transfer an aliquot of the diluted extract to a plastic centrifuge tube for storage until time of analysis. Dependent on analytical method used.
