Standard Test Method for Ultraviolet Absorbance and Absorptivity of Petroleum Products
|Publication Date:||1 May 2006|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
significance And Use:
The absorbance of liquids and the absorptivity of liquid and solids at specified wavelengths in the ultraviolet are useful in characterizing petroleum products.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the ultraviolet absorption of a variety of petroleum products. It covers the absorbance of liquids or the absorptivity of liquids and solids, or both, at wavelengths in the region from 220 to 400 nm of the spectrum.
1.2 The use of this test method implies that the conditions of measurement-waveleng
1.3 Examples of the application of this test method are the determination of the absorbance of white mineral oil, the absorptivity of refined petroleum wax, and the absorptivity of USP petrolatum.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in fahrenheit, feet, and inches, indicated in parentheses, are for information only.
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.
