beads. Shake the flask gently, to make the sample completely wet. Then put the Kjeldahl flask on the support, at an angle of 45 degrees. Cover a glass funnel to the bottle mouth. Use an electric furnace, to start to heat it slowly. When the foam disappears, heat it strongly until it boils. When there are no carbonized substances attached to the bottle wall AND the liquid in the bottle is clear and light green, continue heating for 30 minutes, to make it completely decompose (the above operations shall be carried out in a fume hood).
b. Distillation: After the decomposition liquid is cooled, use distilled water to rinse the glass funnel and the neck of the flask. Dilute it to 200 mL. Move the Kjeldahl flask to the distillation stand. Connect a 500 mL conical flask under the condenser tube, as a receiver.

Filter in a Nessler colorimetric tube. Use a small amount of water to wash the residue. Combine the rinsing solution. Add 50 mg of ammonium persulfate. Use water to dilute it to about 35 mL. Add 3 mL of ammonium thiocyanate solution. Add water to dilute to the mark. Shake well.
Accurately draw 1.00 mL of iron standard solution (1 mL = 10 ??g Fe) into another Nessler colorimetric tube. Use the same method to make a control solution. Then perform visual color comparison with the sample.
If the color tone of the specimen tube and the control tube are inconsistent, they can be moved to the separating funnel, respectively. Add 20 mL of n-butanol. Shake and extract and let it stand still. After stratification, move the n-butanol liquid layer into a 50 mL Nessler colorimetric tube. Then use n-butanol to dilute it to 25 mL. Carry out color comparison.
4.3.9.4 Result Judgment
If the color of the specimen tube is lighter than that of the control tube, the iron salt content is less than 0.002%. If the color of the specimen tube is darker than the control tube, the iron salt content is greater than 0.002%; it is judged as unqualified. Note: The instruments used in this test must be boiled with dilute nitric acid and rinsed with deionized water.
