Title:THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DEFINITION FOR THE CHARACTERISTIC OF IGNITABILITY AS IT PERTAINS TO SOLIDS VS. LIQUIDS
RCRA Online Number:13759
Date:08/24/1995
To:Nebrich
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Waste Technology Services, Inc.
Description: There is no official method for testing ignitability of solids or sludges. Method 1010, Pensky-Martens, has some use for liquid wastes with non-filterable, suspended solids. Flash point testing is only appropriate for liquids. OSW developed and proposed SW-846 test method 1030 based on the DOT burn rate test in Section 173.124 and Appendix E (SUPERSEDED: SW-846 method 1030 finalized in 6/13/97; 62 FR 32451). If using the DOT method, separate the solid/liquid phases and test separately. Supplement tests with generator knowledge.
