In addition to the requirements of the standard DIN 51 750 will be advised on the following: 1.1 usage of vacuum tanker for use of vacuum tanker can be sampling as described below (see figure).
Probenahmevorrichtung on vacuum Tankwagen(Inhalt: nicht darstellbare Abbildung, Fundstelle: BGBl. I 2002, 1373) the suction hose is connected to the extraction nozzle of the waste oil tank, or hooked into other containers. After the tank of the vehicle under vacuum, open the slide 1 and 4 with closed valves 2 and 3 and the acquisition process begins. At the beginning and many times repeatedly until the end, the slide be closed to 1 and 4 for 2 vented intermediate pipe by means of the valve and then through the tap, the contents of this pipe outlet in a sampling drained 3. A total sample of at least 1 l will receive from several such withdrawals. Sampling did not immediately place at beginning of waste oil transfer, because otherwise sample distortions can occur due to carryover effects.
1.2 sampling containers for sampling and storing of samples are to use glass or metal containers. Containers made of other materials are then approved, if it is proved that no recording affecting the measurement of PCBs is performed by the vessel wall.
1.3 sample volume the respective samples is 250 ml at the attack site and 250 ml for the waste oil drain at least 1 l. 1.4 sampling at the attack point of sampling remain at a waste oil seizure authority pursuant to § 5 para 1 sentence 1 of the sample.
The sample into four aliquots to divide is 1.5 sampling at the reclamation site when sampling for purposes of § 5 para 2 of this regulation. Thereof, per a sample for the laboratory, a rehearsal for the supplier, a rehearsal for the dresser and a sample for any Schiedsanalysen (samples) is intended.
As far as multiple samples for one and the same place are determined in the specific case, the number of sub-samples is reduced accordingly.
The relevant safety regulations, in particular those of fire protection, 1.6 observance of safety regulations during the sampling and the handling of the sample should be noted.
1.7 Probenahmeprotokoll sampling is to produce a protocol based on the pattern of the standard 51-750 part 1.
1.8 storing samples is storing samples taken under this regulation according to § 5 para 1 and 3. In the case of a criminal or fine procedure you are provided sample container to be kept up to the end of the procedure for the Schiedsprobe (arbitration according to DIN 51 848, Edition March, 1984).
The collected samples are to secure (E.g. by sealing), that the volume of the sample remains unchanged, as well as place and time of removal can be detected at any time.
2 determination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) 2.1 principle it be the individual levels of the following 6 congeners (PCB 28) 2,4,4'-Trichlorbiphenyl 2, 2 ', 5, 5'-Tetrachlorobiphenyl (PCB 52) 2, 2 ', 4, 5, 5'-Pentachlorbiphenyl (PCB 101) 2, 2 ', 3, 4 ', 4', 5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (PCB 138) 2, 2 ', 4, 4', 5, 5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (PCB 153) 2, 2 ', 3, 4, 4', 5, 5'-Heptachlorbiphenyl (PCB 180) in waste oil and this calculated the PCB content.
2.2 research methods the determination of the individual levels of the 6 congeners listed in section 2.1 has according to DIN EN 12 766 part 1, November 2000, issue to be carried out.
EN has 2.3 calculation the calculation of PCB content according to DIN 12 766 part 2, December 2001 issue, procedure B, to be carried out.
2.4 exceeding of the limit
With a calculated content of 28.5 mg PCB/kg waste oil to be respected according to § 3 limit of 20 mg PCB/kg is considered waste oil exceeded. According to the precision of the DIN EN 12 766 part 2, December 2001, issue is this value exceeding the threshold with a statistical confidence of 95%.
3 determination of the total content of halogen 3.1 principle under the content of an Altöles's total halogen the mass proportion of the inorganic and organically bound halogens chlorine and bromine is understood in the water-free oil phase.
The methods appropriate for the determination of the total content of halogen are listed in section 3.3.
Equivalent methods are approved.
3.2 sample preparation the specimen is so carried out that the measured contents refer to the water-free oil phase. The liquid sample is tested on about existing tailings water. If a water phase is visible, it is separated by means of a separating funnel.
The preserved oil phase or samples containing low free water or emulsions are homogenized.
The water shares of homogenized samples are removed with anhydrous sodium sulfate, batches will be stirred into a sample lot of 5 to 30 g.
If required, the sodium sulfate and other solids from oil will be centrifuged.
Note: The drying of the oil sample is thus carried out to prevent evaporative losses by highly volatile components.
3.3 analysis procedure 3.3.1 pre-test with energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis determination of chlorine and bromine content with energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis according to DIN 51-577 part 4, issue February 1994 3.3.2 reference procedure combustion Wickbold and determination of the halide content of the digestion solution digestion of the sample in a Wickbold apparatus in accordance with DIN EN ISO 24 260, issued in May 1994, or by a different, equivalent procedures and subsequent determination of the halide content (in accordance with section 3.1) in the digestion solution based on an argentometric titration such as according to DIN 51 408 part 1, edition of June 1983, or according to DIN 38 405 part 1, edition of December 1985, or using ion chromatography according to DIN EN ISO 10 304 part 1, April 1995, Edition or by a different, equivalent process. Wellenlängendispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis determination of chlorine and bromine content with wellenlängendispersiver X-ray fluorescence analysis according to DIN 51 577 part 2, January 1993, output or DIN 51 577 part 3, June 1990 3.4 exceeding of the limit exceeding of the permissible under § 3 para 1 total halogen content is basically proven, if the content is determined according to a reference method by more than 5% above the limit. The investigation can be omitted after one of the reference method, if the preliminary test a total halogen content does not exceed 1,4 g / kg.
4 quality assurance and control that investigative bodies are obliged to insure the reliability of the analytical results through appropriate measures for quality assurance and control. This includes among others the evidence of regular successful participation in interlaboratory studies.
