ISO 771-2021 pdf free download.Oilseed meals – Determination of moisture and volatile matter content.
5.5 Electric oven, with thermostatic control and good natural ventilation, capable of being regulated so that the temperature of the air and of the shelves in the neighbourhood of the test portions lies between 101 °C and 105 °C in normal operation.
5.6 Desiccator, containing an efficient desiccant and provided with a metal plate that allows vessels (.5A) to cool rapidly.
6 Sample
6.1 Sampling
Sampling is not part of the method specified in this document. A recommended sampling method is given in ISO 5500. A representative sample should have been sent to the laboratory. It should not have been damaged or changed during transport or storage.
6.2 Preparation of test sample
Prepare the test sample in accordance with ISO 5502. Grind the contract sample in the previously well- cleaned mechanical mill (52)’ collect the grindings, mix carefully and carry out the analysis without delay.
7 Procedure
7.1 Carry out two determinations on each sample.
7.2 Weigh the vessel to the nearest 0,001 g with the lid (5A) after leaving it open for at least 30 mm in the desiccator (5k) at laboratory temperature. Note mass m0.
7.3 Weigh, to the nearest 0,00 1 g, about 5 g of the test sample into the vessel (5A). spread the sample uniformly over the whole base of the vessel, and re-weigh with its lid. Carry out these operations as quickly as possible, in order to avoid any appreciable change in moisture content. Note mass m1.
7.4 Place the vessel with the test portion in the oven (5k), which has previously been set to a temperature of (103 ± 2) °C, and take off the lid.
If several vessels are in the oven together, arrange them in such a way that air can circulate freely between them.
7.5 Close the oven. After 2 h, reckoned from the time when the temperature in the oven has returned to (103 ± 2) °C, open the oven, replace the lid on the vessel before removal from the oven and transfer to the desiccator. As soon as the vessel has cooled to laboratory temperature, weigh it to the nearest 0,00 1 g.
During the drying, do not open the oven to add other test portions.
7.6 Return the vessel, with the lid removed, to the oven. After 1 h, repeat the operations of closing the vessel, allowing to cool, and weighing. Note Mass m2.
7.7 If the difference between the two weighings is equal to or less than 0,00 5 g, regard the determination as finished. If not, repeat the procedure and dry again for 1 h in the oven, until the difference between two successive weighings is equal to or less than 0,00 5 g.
NOTE For most oilseed meals, a single 4 h period in the oven at (103 ± 2) °C gives equivalent results, but it is the responsibility of the analyst to confirm this in each particular case.
8 Expression of results — Method of calculation and formula
The moisture and volatile matter content w, as a mass fraction in grams per 100 g, is given by Formula (1):
w= 1 2 xlOO (1)
m0 is the mass, in grams, of the vessel;
rn1 is the mass, in grams, of the vessel and test portion before drying;
in2 is the mass, in grams, of the vessel and test portion after drying.
Use the mean value from the 2 reps if repeatability conditions are satisfied (92) and express the result to one decimal place.
9 Precision
9.1 Results of interlaboratory test
Details ofan interlaboratory test on the precision of the method are summarized in Annex A. The values derived from this interlaboratory test might not be applicable to concentration ranges and matrices other than those given.ISO 771 pdf download.
