Standard Test Method for Determining Filterability of Middle Distillate Fuel Oils
|Publication Date:||1 December 2018|
|ICS Code (Liquid and solid fuel burners):||27.060.10|
This test method covers a procedure for determining the filterability of distillate fuel oils within the viscosity range from 1.70 mm2/s to 6.20 mm2/s (cSt) at 40 °C.
NOTE 1-ASTM specification fuels falling within the scope of this test method are Specification D396 Grade No. 2, Specification D975 Grade No. 2-D, and Specification D2880 Grade No. 2-GT.
NOTE 2-The test method has been used with lower viscosity middle distillate fuels such as Specification D396 Grade No. 1, Specification D975 Grade No. 1-D, and Specification D2880 Grade No. 1-GT, but the precision has not been studied and therefore the stated precision has not been validated for these grades.
This test method is not applicable to fuels that contain undissolved water.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
Non-SI units, specifically U.S. customary units such as temperature in degrees Fahrenheit and pressure in pounds per square inch gauge (psig), are included for information.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
