Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
scope:

This specification covers four grades of fuel oil made of at least 25 % used lubricating oils. The four grades of fuel are intended for use in various types of fuel-oil-burning industrial equipment and commercial boilers under various climatic and operating conditions. These fuels are not intended for use in residential heaters.

Grades RFC4, RFC5L, RFC5H and RFC6 are used lubricating oil blends of increasing viscosity, with or without middle distillate or residual fuel oil, or both, that are intended for use in industrial burners and commercial boilers equipped to handle these types of fuels. This specification is for applications where Specification D 6448 would not meet the performance or other requirements of the burner or boiler in question.

NOTE 1-For information on the significance of the terminology and test methods used in this specification, see Appendix X1.

This specification is for use in contracts for the purchase of fuel oils derived from used lubricating oil and for the guidance of consumers of such fuels. This specification does not address the frequency with which any particular test must be run.

Nothing in this specification shall preclude observance of national or local regulations which can be more restrictive. In some jurisdictions, used oil is considered a hazardous waste and fuels derived from used oil are required to meet certain criteria before use as a fuel.

NOTE 2-For U.S. federal requirements imposed on used oil generators, transporters and transfer facilities, reprocessors, marketers, and burners, see U.S. Federal Code 40 CFR 279.

NOTE 3-The generation and dissipation of static electricity can create problems in the handling of distillate burner fuel oils. For more information on the subject, see Guide D 4865.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Exception-Table 1 and Table X1.1 include inch-pound values in parentheses for information only.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
