DQM Check for Percent Solids

The DQM Check for Percent Solids verifies that percent solids (= 100 – DT_TEST.PERCENT_MOISTURE) values are within user-specified control and warning limits for sample matrix codes that have the specified MEDIUM_CODE in RT_MATRIX.

 

Note: RT_MATRIX.MEDIUM_CODE must be populated for this check to function or the MEDIUM_CODE input parameter must be set to NULL in the Settings (i.e. delete the Value in the Settings\Parameter table, but do not delete the whole row for that parameter).

 

Check name is EarthSoft.DQM.PercentSolids = Percent Solids.

 

This check uses the REPORTABLE_RESULT and RESULT_TYPE_CODE parameters from Global Parameters.

 

There are four other input parameters and they are:

Medium_code** – Defaults to "Soil"

Sample_type_code** – Defaults to "N"

Lower_control_limit* – Defaults to 10

Lower_warning_limit* – Defaults to 20

 

Notes:

The default value is used if there is no record in RT_DQM_CHECK_PARAM for an input parameter.

For parameters marked with *, the default value is used if the PARAM_VALUE is NULL for this parameter in RT_DQM_CHECK_PARAM.

For parameters marked with **, all result records are checked if the PARAM_VALUE is NULL for this parameter in RT_DQM_CHECK_PARAM.

 

There are four rules:

1.INVALID = Qualify the result if the value of DT_TEST.PERCENT_MOISTURE is NULL or is not numeric.

2.LESS THAN LOWER WARNING LIMIT = Qualify the result if it is a detected concentration and Percent Solids < LOWER_WARNING_LIMIT.

3.LESS THAN LOWER CONTROL LIMIT = Qualify the result if it is non-detect and Percent Solids < LOWER_CONTROL_LIMIT.

4.BETWEEN CONTROL AND WARNING LIMITS = Qualify the result if it is non-detect and Percent Solids >= LOWER_CONTROL_LIMIT and < LOWER_WARNING_LIMIT.
