    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 05.03, 2018 Defines the thermogravimetric (TGA) determination of CO[2] reactivity and dusting of shaped carbon anodes and cathode blocks used in the aluminum reduction industry.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This test method covers the thermogravimetric (TGA) determination of CO2 reactivity and dusting of shaped carbon anodes and cathode blocks used in the aluminum reduction industry. The apparatus selection covers a significant variety of types with various thermal conditions, sample size capability, materials of construction, and procedures for determining the mass loss and subsequent rate of reaction. This test method standardizes the variables of sample dimensions, reaction temperature, gas velocity over the exposed surfaces, and reaction time such that results obtained on different apparatuses are correlatable.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
