Standard ASTM D5058-12R20

Standard Practices for Compatibility of Screening Analysis of Waste
Publication date
13.030.40 Installations and equipment for waste disposal and treatment
Summary :

1.1 These practices cover assessment of the compatibility/reactivity of waste. The individual practices are as follows:



Practice A—Commingled Waste Compatibility

8 – 12

Practice B—Polymerization Potential (Reaction with



13 – 18

Practice C—Water Compatibility

19 – 25

1.2 These practices are applicable to waste liquids, sludges, semi-solids, and solids.

1.3 These practices are designed and intended as a preliminary or supplementary test to complement the more sophisticated quantitative analytical techniques that should be used to determine waste composition and compatibilities. This standard offers the user the option and the ability to screen wastes for potentially hazardous reactions when the more sophisticated techniques are not available and the total waste composition is unknown, and to screen compatibility when the composition is known. (Warning—Delayed or slow reactions of wastes may go unnoticed.)

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

1.4.1 Exception—The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard and warning statements, see Sections 1.3, 6.1, 10, 11.2.3, 11.5.2, 16, and 23.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
