ASTM - D4046
Standard Test Method for Alkyl Nitrate in Diesel Fuels by Spectrophotometry
|Publication Date:||1 June 2014|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method covers a procedure for the determination of 0.03 % to 0.30 % by volume of alkyl nitrate in diesel fuels.
This test method can be used for the determination of any alkyl nitrate in diesel fuel provided that standards used for calibration contain the same alkyl nitrate ester as the test specimens to be analyzed.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
