ASTM D Standard Test Method for Particulate Contamination in Middle Distillate Fuels by Laboratory Filtration. standard by ASTM. Method reference ASTM D is used to determine the mass of particulate ASTM D determines the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample which . This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D02 on.

Ensure that the line to be sampled is ushed with fuel before taking the sample. NOTE 2β€”The electrical bonding apparatus described in Test Method D or other suitable means of electrical grounding which ensure safe operation of the ltration apparatus and ask can be used.

Install the atm and secure with locking ring or spring clip. With the vacuum applied, carefully separate the funnel from the lter base. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results.

Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415

See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Results obtained when analyzing samples with volumes signicantly different than 1 L may have different precision values.

Glass containers also allow for visual inspection of the container, after the sample is emptied, to conrm complete rinsing of the container. If all astn fuel has been ltered, thoroughly rinse the sample container and the graduated cylinder d62177 one or more portions of ltered ushing uid and pour the rinses into the funnel and proceed to This includes not only all of the fuel but also all rinsings asrm the interior of the container with ushing uid. D β€” 98 FIG. If the fuel highly contaminated, more than one set of lters may be required see Section This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods.


This allows the fuel to be used for astn analyses. However, some fuels, due to the quantity or nature of particulates, or both, may plug the membrane lter during ltration and require use of multiple successive ltrations. Both grade 1 and grade 2 diesel fuels were used in the testing. Reagents and Materials 7. Where possible, the contents of the tank should be circulated or agitated before sampling, or the sampling performed shortly after a tank has been lled. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and d6271. This test method is d6127 for all No.

When the level of particulate contamination is low, a single set will usually suffice; when the contamination is high or of a nature that induces slow ltration rates, two or more sets may be required to complete ltration in a reasonable time. Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate.

A fuel and solvent resistance rubber hose through which the grounding wire passes shall connect the sidearm of the receiving ask to the tube passing through the rubber stopper in the top of the safety ask. D β€” 98 exposure to fumes, the ltering procedure should be performed in a fume hood.


See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. This test method is suitable for all No.

This test method provides a means of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. Protect the fuel sample from prolonged exposure to light by wrapping the aastm in aluminum foil or storing it in the dark to reduce the possibility of particulate formation by light-promoted reactions. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Maximum particulate levels are specied in several military fuel specications. This test method provides a means of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample.

Because of this, take care to protect the sample from any external contamination. Do not remove the plastic lm from the funnel opening until ready to start ltration.

Air ionizers shall be replaced within one year of manufacture. D β€” 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8. Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected from contamination from the atmosphere.
