Applies to lampholders with Edison thread E14, E27 and E40, designed for connection to the supply of lamps and semi-luminaires only. Also applies to switched-lampholders for use in a.c. circuits only, where the working voltage does not exceed 250 V r.m.s. Also applies to lampholders with Edison thread E5 designed for connection to the supply mains of series connected lamps, with a working voltage not exceeding 25 V, to be used indoors, and to lampholders with Edison thread E10 designed for connection to the supply mains of series connected lamps, with a working voltage not exceeding 60 V, to be used indoors or outdoors. Also applies to lampholders E10 for building-in, for the connection of single lamps to the supply. Also covers lampholders other than lampholders with Edison thread designed for connection of series-connected lamps to the supply

|Water quality — Determination of chromium — Atomic absorption spectrometric methods
Specifies two methods for the determination of total chromium in water by atomic absorption spectrometry. The two methods are covered in separate sections as follows. Section 2: Method A - Determination of total chromium by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Section 3: Method B - Determination of total chromium by electrothermal atomization atomic absorption spectrometry. Method A is applicable to the analysis of water and waste water when the concentration range is between 0,5 mg/l and 20 mg/l of chromium. When the concentration is below 0,5 mg/l the determination can be carried out after carefully evaporating an acidified sample to small bulk, taking care to avoid the formation of a precipitate.
IMPORTANT - The use of evaporation will increase the effect of interfering substances and therefore for concentrations below 0,l mg/l method B is given.
