Chromium content of Chromium ores and concentrates


The REX Ti-50 Automatic Potential Titrator allows quick and simple determinations of the chromium content of chromium ores by potentiometric titration.


1. Standard Reference

ISO 6331-1983 Chromium ores and concentrates Determination of Chromium content Titrimetric method

ISO/DIS 6331 Chromium ores and concentrates Determination of chromium content Titrimetric method

The method is applicable to products having a chromium content greater than 7 % (m/m). Should be read in conjunction with ISO 6629. Specifies principle, reagents, apparatus, procedure and expression of results.


2. The Principle

Decomposition of a test portion by fusing with sodium per-oxide. Leaching the melt with water, acidifying with sulfuric acid and removing the excess of hydrogen peroxide by boiling.

Oxidation of chromium(lll) ions to chromate with ammonium peroxodisulphate in the presence of silver nitrate as catalyst.

Titration of chromium(Vl) with ammonium iron(ll) sulfate, the end-point being obtained either visually, by adding an excess of ammonium iron(ll) sulfate and back-titrating with potassium permanganate, or directly by potentiometric titration.
