25 Name: CARBON, ACTIVATED, POWDERED CAS No.: 7440-44-0 Chemical Formula: C Description: Formu] _ Black powder with enormous surface area; insoluble in water. Use: NAS/CWTC 009-82 12.0 Adsorption and removal of color, odor, and other soluble substances from water. Purity Requirements: The RMIC values are based on a maximum dosage of 200 mg of activated carbon/liter of water and are to be compared to impurity concentrations obtained by using sample procedures described in this monograph. If the actual dosage is other than 200 mg/liter, the user is cautioned to consult Table 2 for appropriate RMIC values.

26 Analytical Sample Preparation--Extraction Solution: Add 47 ml of 0.1 N sodium hydroxide to 100 ml of 0.1 M potassium hydrogen phthalate and dilute with deionized water to 200 ml. Resultant solution will have a pH of 5 + 0.05. Weigh 5 g of PAC into a 400-ml beaker. Add 200 ml of extraction solution slowly to the carbon. Add 1 drop of nonionic detergent (wetting agent). Cover with watch- glass and begin extraction on magnetic stirrer, agitating slowly at first until all PAC is wetted and in suspension Continue extraction for a total contact time of 1 hour + 5 minutes. Filter through No. 41 filter paper. Use filtrate for analysis. Sample Analyses: The analyses are to be performed on the powdered, activated carbon filtrate in accordance with: Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Waste- water, 15th Edition, American Public Health Association, Washington, D.C. (1981). Arsenic Chromium Lead Mercury Silver ,. Section 304 Section 304 Section 304 Section 303F Section 304
