Standard Test Method for Luminometer Numbers of Aviation Turbine Fuels
|Publication Date:||10 June 2001|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
1.1 This test method² covers the measurement of the flame radiation characteristics of aviation turbine fuels and other similar distillate fuels expressed in terms of luminometer numbers. There is good correlation between smoke point (Test Method D 1322) and luminometer number which is presented in Appendix XI.²
1.2 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. For specific precautionary statements, see 7.1, 7.2, 8.1, 8.2 and Annex A1.1.
Note 1 - It is the intent of Subcommittee J to ballot to withdraw this test method when due for reapproval in 2006, because of very limited and declining use to determine compliance with aviation turbine fuel specifications.
