|Publication Date:||15 June 2013|
|ICS Code (Gaseous fuels):||75.160.30|
This test method2 covers the detection of hydrogen sulfide in liquefied petroleum (LP) gases. The sensitivity of the test is about 4 mg ⁄m3 (0.15 to 0.2 grain of hydrogen sulfide per 100 ft3) of gas.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
