ASTM C1429-21

Standard Test Method for Isotopic Analysis of Uranium Hexafluoride by Double-Standard Multi-Collector Gas Mass Spectrometer

1.1This test method covers a quantitative test method applicable to determining the mass percent of uranium isotopes in uranium hexafluoride (UF6) samples. This method as described is for concentrations of 235U between 0.1 and 10 mass %, and 234U and 236U between 0.0001 and 0.1 mass %.

1.2This test method is for laboratory analysis by a gas mass spectrometer with a multi-collector.

1.3This standard complements Test Methods C761, the double-standard method for gas mass spectrometers using a single collector, by providing a method for spectrometers using a multi-collector.

1.4This 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.

1.5This 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.
