ASTM International - ASTM D6596-00
Standard Practice for Ampulization and Storage of Gasoline and Related Hydrocarbon Materials
|Publication Date:||10 December 2000|
|ICS Code (Liquid and solid fuel burners):||27.060.10|
1.1 This practice covers a general guide for the ampulization and storage of gasoline and related hydrocarbon mixtures that are to be used as calibration standards or reference materials. This practice addresses materials, solutions, or mixtures, which may contain volatile components. This practice is not intended to address the ampulization of highly viscous liquids, materials that are solid at room temperature, or materials that have high percentages of dissolved gases that cannot be handled under reasonable cooling temperatures and at normal atmospheric pressure without losses of these volatile components.
1.2 This practice is applicable to automated ampule filling and sealing machines as well as to manual ampule filling devices, such as pipettes and hand-operated liquid dispensers.
1.3 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.
