Trace quantities of sulfur compounds in hydrocarbon products can be harmful to many catalytic chemical processes in which these products are used. Maximum permissible levels of total sulfur are normally included in specifications for such hydrocarbons. It is recommended that this test method be used to provide a basis for agreement between two laboratories when the determination of sulfur in hydrocarbon gases is important.
On liquefied petroleum gas, total volatile sulfur is measured on an injected gas sample. For such material a liquid sample must be used to measure total sulfur.View Less
1.1 This test method covers determination of sulfur in the range from 1.5 to 100 mg/kg (ppm by mass) by weight in hydrocarbon products that are gaseous at normal room temperature and pressure.
Note 1- The test method has been tested cooperatively only on high-purity ethylene gas. Precision data have not been developed for other products.
1.2 The values stated in Si units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given n parentheses are for information only
1.3This 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.
