Standard Practice for Sampling Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gases (Manual Method)
|Publication Date:||10 November 1997|
|ICS Code (Gaseous fuels):||75.160.30|
1.1 This practice covers the procedures for obtaining representative samples of liquefied petroleum gases such as propane, butane, or mixtures thereof, in containers other than those used in laboratory testing apparatus. These procedures are considered adequate for obtaining representative samples for all routine tests for LP gases required by Specification D 1835 except analysis by Test Method D 2163. They are not intended for obtaining samples to be used for compositional analysis. A sample procedure that avoids changes in composition must be used for compositional analysis.
NOTE 1--Practice D 3700 describes a recommended method for obtaining a representative sample of a hydrocarbon fluid and the subsequent preparation of that sample for laboratory analysis.
1.2 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
