Standard Test Method for Low Sulfur in Automotive Fuels by Energy-Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry Using a Low-Background Proportional Counter
|Publication Date:||15 June 2013|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method specifies an energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) method for the determination of the total sulfur content of automotive fuels with a concentration range from 7 mg/kg to 50 mg/kg.
The pooled limit of quantitation of this test method as obtained by statistical analysis of interlaboratory test results is 7 mg ⁄kg sulfur.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The preferred concentration units are mg/kg sulfur.
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.
