scope:

1.1 This test method covers a procedure for the determination of the Enhanced Filter Blocking Tendency (EFBT) and the filterability of middle distillate fuel oils. This test is applicable to fuels within the viscosity range of 1.3 mm2/s to 6.0 mm2/s at 40 °C.

Note 1: ASTM specification fuels falling within the scope of this test method are: Specification D396 Grades No 1 and 2; Specification D975 Grades No. 1-D S15 and S500, and No. 2-D S15 and S500; Specification D2880 Grades No. 1-GT and No. 2-GT.

1.2 This test method has interim repeatability only. For more information, see Section 12.

1.3 This test method is not applicable to fuels that contain free (undissolved) water (see 7.3).

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

1.5 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.

1.6 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.
