Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 March 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 8
ICS Code (Liquid fuels): 75.160.20
scope:

This test method uses specific automatic particle condition monitors (PCMs) to count and measure the size of dispersed dirt particles, water droplets and other particulates, in middle distillate fuel, in the overall range from 4 μm to 70 μm and in the size bands ≥4 μm, ≥6 μm, ≥14 μm, and ≥30 μm.

This test method has interim repeatability precision only, see Section 14 for more information.

NOTE 1-ASTM specification fuels falling within the scope of this test method include Specifications: D975, D1655, D3699, D7467, MIL-DTL-83133, MIL-DTL-5624, and distillate grades of D396 and D2880.

NOTE 2-For the purposes of this test method, water droplets are counted as particles, and agglomerated particles are detected and counted as a single larger particle. Dirt includes microbial particulates. Although the projected area of a particle is measured, this is expressed as the diameter of a circle for the purposes of this test method. The detector is unable to distinguish between dirt and water particles.

NOTE 3-This test method may be used for particle sizes bands up to 70 μm, however the interim repeatability has only been determined for the size bands ≥4 μm, ≥6 μm, and ≥14 μm. All measurements are counts per millilitre.

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

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.
