SW-846 Test Method 1314: Liquid-Solid Partitioning as a Function of Liquid-Solid Ratio for Constituents in Solid Materials Using An Up-Flow Percolation Column Procedure

This method is one of four Leaching Environmental Assessment Framework (LEAF) methods. It is designed to provide the liquid-solid partitioning (LSP) of inorganic and non-volatile organic constituents in a granular solid material as a function of liquid-to-solid ratio (L/S) under percolation conditions.

More information about the LEAF, including a detailed "How-To" Guide, can be found on the LEAF web page.
