Standard Practice for Shake Extraction of Solid Waste with Water

This practice is intended as a rapid means for obtaining an extract of solid waste. The extract may be used to estimate the release of constituents of the solid waste under the laboratory conditions described in this procedure. This practice is not intended to provide an extract that is representative of the actual leachate produced from a solid waste in the field or to produce extracts to be used as the sole basis of engineering design.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Dry, shake, and vacuum or pressure filtration (extraction)

Link to ASTM® D3987-12 Method
