Standard Practice for Gas Chromatograph Based On-line/At-line Analysis for Sulfur Content of Gaseous Fuels
|Publication Date:||15 January 2006|
1.1 This practice is for the determination of volatile sulfur-containing compounds in high methane content gaseous fuels such as natural gas using on-line/at-line instrumentation, and continuous fuel monitors (CFMS). It has been successfully applied to other types of gaseous samples including air, digester, landfill, and refinery fuel gas. The detection range for sulfur compounds, reported as picograms sulfur, based upon the analysis of a 1 cc sample, is one hundred (100) to one million (1,000,000). This is equivalent to 0.1 to 1,000 mg/m3.
1.2 This practice does not purport to measure all sulfur species in a sample. Only volatile compounds that are transported to an instrument under the measurement conditions selected are measured.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are for information only.
1.4 This practice 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 practice to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
