3 Classification of Solids Suspended Solids Those solids that are non-filtrable with specified filters and are not volatilized at 103 degrees Celsius. Stuff that will not go through special filters and will not be lost when heated to dry the filter.

4 Classification of Solids Suspended Solids Those solids that are non-filtrable with specified filters and are not volatilized at 103 degrees Celsius. Dissolved Solids Those solids which are in solution and are therefore filtrable. Stuff that DOES get through the filters

5 Classification of Solids Suspended Solids Those solids that are non-filtrable with specified filters and are not volatilized at 103 degrees Celsius. Suspended Volatile Solids That portion of the suspended solids which are volatilized at 550 degrees C Dissolved Solids Those solids which are in solution and are therefore filtrable. Total Solids All of the solids present whether suspended or dissolved. Total Volatile Solids That portion of the total solids which are volatilized at 550 degrees C.

6 TOTAL SUSPENDED AND VOLATILE SUSPENDED SOLIDS PROCEDURE TOTAL SUSPENDED AND VOLATILE SUSPENDED SOLIDS PROCEDURE The Suspended Solids are removed from a sample by filtration and weighed. (Gravimetric) The Solids are ignited at 550°C. The remaining solids are the Fixed (inorganic) solids. The loss on ignition is the Volatile (organic) solids.
