|Publication Date:||10 May 2001|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of aluminum and silicon in fuel oils at concentrations between 5 and 150 mg/kg for aluminum and 10 and 250 mg/kg for silicon.
1.2 Test Method A--Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry is used in this test method to quantitatively determine aluminum and silicon.
1.3 Test Method B--Flame atomic absorption spectrometry is used in this test method to quantitatively determine aluminum and silicon.
1.4 The values given in SI (metric) units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in 10.1 and 11.5.
