SW-846 Test Method 9096: Liquid Release Test (LRT) Procedure

Scope and Application

1.1 The Liquid Release Test (LRT) is a laboratory test designed to
determine whether or not liquids will be released from sorbents when they are
subjected to overburden pressures in a landfill.
1.2 Any liquid-loaded sorbent that fails the EPA Paint Filter Free
Liquids Test (PFT) (SW-846 Method 9095), may be assumed to release liquids in
this test. Analysts should ensure that the material in question will pass the
PFT before performing the LRT.
