Test procedure:

This test requires a test sample of at least 1 g for cast iron and 2 g for steel. The test piece is cut into small chips and then burned in an induction furnace. The carbon and sulfur in the material are burned and converted into CO, CO2 and SO2 respectively. These gases are then measured with an infrared detector and the amount of carbon and sulfur present in the material is calculated.
