Standard Test Method for Distillation of Petroleum Products at Atmospheric Pressure (Mini Method)
|Publication Date:||1 December 2011|
This test method covers the procedure for the determination of the distillation characteristics of petroleum products in the range of 20 to 400°C (68 to 752°F) using miniaturized automatic distillation apparatus.
This test method is applicable to such products as: light and middle distillates, automotive spark-ignition engine fuels, automotive spark-ignition engine fuels containing up to 10 % ethanol, aviation gasolines, aviation turbine fuels, regular and low sulfur diesel fuels, biodiesel blends up to 20 % biodiesel, special petroleum spirits, naphthas, white spirits, kerosines, burner fuels, and marine fuels.
This test method is designed for the analysis of distillate products; it is not applicable to products containing appreciable quantities of residual material.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
