This test method can be used to determine specification, or regulatory compliance to requirements, for total sulfur in gaseous fuels. In gas processing plants, sulfur can be a contaminant and must be removed before gas is introduced into gas pipelines. In petrochemical plants, sulfur is a poison for many catalysts and must be reduced to acceptable levels, usually in the range from 0.01 to 1 ppm/v. This test method may also be used as a quality-control tool for sulfur determination in finished products, such as propane, butane, ethane, and ethylene.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of sulfur gaseous fuels in the range from 0.001 to 20 parts per million by volume (ppm/v).
1.2 This test method may be extended to higher concentration by dilution.
