Testing for free iron content in acidic solutions


I currently have 2 stainless steel passivation tanks. A 21% nitric acid solution with sodium dichromate and a 50% nitric acid solution. I also have a stainless steel etch tank filled with Wyandotte DS9-314. What is the lab procedure to check these solutions for free iron? The passivation and etch are in accordance with ASTM A967 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] .
