Standard Test Method for Particulate Contamination in Aviation Fuels by Laboratory Filtration
|Publication Date:||10 June 2000|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
1.1 This test method covers the gravimetric determination by filtration of particulate contaminant in a sample of aviation turbine fuel delivered to a laboratory.
1.1.1 The sample is filtered through a test membrane and a control membrane using vacuum. The mass change difference identifies the contaminant level per unit volume.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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 hazard statements, see 4.2, 7.3, 7.5, 11.3 and X1.7.2. Before using this standard, refer to supplier's safety labels, material safety data sheets, and technical literature.
