Standard Test Method for Boiling Range Distribution of Petroleum Distillates in the Boiling Range from 100 to 615°C by Gas Chromatography
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This test method covers the determination of the boiling range distribution of petroleum products. This test method is applicable to petroleum distillates having an initial boiling point greater than 100°C and a final boiling point less than 615°C at atmospheric pressure as measured by this test method.
The test method is not applicable for analysis of petroleum distillates containing low molecular weight components (for example, naphthas, reformates, gasolines, crude oils). Materials containing heterogeneous components (for example, alcohols, ethers, acids or esters) or residue are not to be analyzed by this test method. See Test Methods D3710, D2887, D6352, or D5307.
This test method uses the principles of simulated distillation methodology.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
