Standard Test Method for Sulfur in Petroleum Products by High Temperature Combustion and IR Detection
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This test method covers a procedure for the determination of total sulfur in petroleum products including lubricating oils containing additives, and in additive concentrates. This test method is applicable to samples boiling above 177 °C (350 °F) and containing a mass fraction of sulfur not less than 0.06 %. This procedure uses IR detection following pyrolysis in a resistance furnace.
Petroleum coke containing up to 8 mass % sulfur can be analyzed.
NOTE 1-The D1552-08 (2014) version of this standard contained two other procedures using iodate titrations. Since these procedures are no longer being used in the industry laboratories based on a survey of D02.SC 3 laboratories conducted in September 2014, they are being deleted. For earlier information on the deleted procedures, D1552-08 (2014) may be perused.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
