Using 1 gal of a middle distillate fuel, which can contain greater particulate levels, d62117 required excessive time to complete the ltration. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. This test method is suitable for all No.
Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. X6217 the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate.

Allow 30 min for the membrane lters to come to equilibrium with room air temperature and humidity. NOTE 7—Membrane lters with a grid imprinted on their surface, may be used as d217 membrane lters for identication. With the vacuum applied, carefully separate the funnel from the lter base. See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. The cooperative test involved 13 laboratories and nine test fuels. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but r6217 not provided as part of the standard.
Container caps should be handled only externally with clean laboratory crucible tongs during this and subsequent washings. Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel. Unless otherwise indicated, it is intended that all reagents shall conform to the specications of the Committee on Analytical Reagents of the American Chemical Society, where such specications are available.
To minimize operator 4 9. 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.
When the level of particulate contamination is low, a single set will usually suffice; when the contamination is high or of a nature that induces slow ltration rates, two or more sets may be required to complete ltration in a reasonable time. Summary of Test Method 4. Install the funnel and secure with locking ring or spring clip. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels.
To facilitate the latter, it is advisable to use smaller cleaned graduated transfer cylinders of mL capacity. Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit.
The entire contents of the sample container shall be ltered through the membrane lters to ensure a correct measure of the particulate contamination in the sample. Current edition approved Jan.
This test method is suitable for all No. Active view current version of standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Maintain vacuum after the atm washing for 10 to 15 s to remove excess ltered ushing uid from the membrane lter. Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected from contamination from the atmosphere.
Preparation of Membrane Filters Results obtained when analyzing samples with volumes signicantly different than 1 L may have different precision values. Do not transfer the fuel sample from its original sample container into an intermediate storage container. D62217 the container vigorously for about 12min.
Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. NOTE 11—Subscripts 1 to x indicate the number of the ltration. Reagents and Materials 7.
Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. Signicance and Use 5. Wash the periphery of the membrane lter by directing a gentle stream of ltered ushing uid from the edge to the center, exercising care not to wash any of the particulate from the surface of the membrane lter.
Glass containers also allow for visual inspection of the container, after the sample is emptied, to conrm complete rinsing of the container. Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. NOTE 2—The electrical bonding apparatus described in Test Method D or other suitable means of electrical grounding which ensure safe operation of the ltration apparatus and ask can be used.
Where possible, the contents of the tank should be circulated or agitated before sampling, or the sampling performed shortly after a tank has been lled. The information on the precision of this test method was developed with fuels ranging in particulate contamination from approximately 0. Calculation and Report Protect the fuel sample from prolonged exposure to light by wrapping the container in aluminum foil or storing it in the dark to reduce the possibility of particulate formation by light-promoted reactions.
Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415
A fuel and solvent resistance rubber hose through which the grounding wire passes shall connect the sidearm of the receiving ask to the tube passing through the rubber stopper in the top of the safety ask. If the original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained. Record the nal control membrane lter mass and the nal test membrane lter mass to the nearest 0.
Epoxy lined sample cans, polytetrauoroethylene PTFE bottles, and high density linear polyethylene bottles have also been found suitable as sample containers but are less desirable since visual inspection of the interior of the container is more difficult. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. Precision and Bias
