5.1 Synthesized iso-paraffins (SIP) fuel are being approved for blending with jet fuel provided that they meet a purity specification of more than 97 % farnesane, more than 98 % saturated... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of farnesane (2,6,10-trimethyldodecane), saturated hydrocarbons, and hexahydrofarnesol content in synthesized iso-paraffins (SIP) fuel for blending with jet fuel by gas chromatography.

1.2 Farnesane is determined from 96 % to 99.9 % by mass. Sum of saturated hydrocarbons including farnesane is determined from 97 % to 99.9 % by mass, and hexahydrofarnesol is determined from 0.02 % to 2.0 % by mass.

1.3 This test method does identify and quantify main impurities or group type of impurities but does not purport to identify all individual components that can be present in synthesized iso-paraffins (SIP) fuel for jet fuel blending.

1.4 This test method is inappropriate for impurities that boil at temperatures higher than 460 °C or for impurities that cause poor or no response in a flame ionization detector.

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

1.6 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.

1.7 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.
