Standard Test Method for Distillation of Petroleum Products at Atmospheric Pressure (Micro Distillation Method
|Publication Date:||15 July 2007|
|ICS Code (Processing equipment):||75.180.20|
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for determination of the distillation characteristics of petroleum products having boiling range between 20 to 400°C at atmospheric pressure using an automatic micro distillation apparatus.
1.2 This test method is applicable to such products as; light and middle distillates, automotive spark-ignition engine fuels, aviation gasolines, aviation turbine fuels, regular and low sulfur diesel fuels, biodiesel fuels, special petroleum spirits, naphthas, white spirits, kerosines, burner fuels, and marine fuels.
1.3 The test method is also applicable to hydrocarbons with a narrow boiling range, like organic solvents or oxygenated compounds.
1.4 The test method is designed for the analysis of distillate products; it is not applicable to products containing appreciable quantities of residual material.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given 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.
