Precision and Bias Maximum particulate levels are specified in several military fuel specifications.

Do not transfer the fuel sample from its original sample container into d62217 intermediate storage container. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. However, some fuels, due to the quantity or nature of particulates, or both, may c6217 the membrane lter during ltration and require use of multiple successive ltrations.

If the ltrate is to be subsequently tested for stability it is advisable not to use copper as copper ions catalyze gum formation during the x6217 test. See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. Active view current version of standard. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such sstm, are entirely their own responsibility.

This allows the fuel to be used for additional analyses. When it is not practical to clean the sampling lines, rinse them thoroughly with the fuel to be sampled. Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. Asm NOTE 8—Caution—It is important to note that the entire contents of the sample container are ltered during the conduct of this test method.


Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. Calculation and Report No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The two membrane lters used for each individual test shall be identied by marking the petri dishes used to hold d6271 transport the lters. Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected from contamination from aatm atmosphere.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

This test method provides a asm of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample. Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate. D — 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8. D — 98 robin participants using both water aspirated and mechanical vacuum systems with vacuums ranging from 1 to kPa.

To facilitate the latter, it is advisable to use smaller cleaned graduated transfer cylinders of mL capacity.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below aztm referenced within the subject asrm but are not provided as part of the standard. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Weigh it, record the initial mass to the nearest 0. Similarly protect the funnel opening of the assembled ltration apparatus with a clean protective cover until ready for use. Preparation of Membrane Filters It is the responsibility of the adtm of aastm standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


Because of this, take care to protect the sample from any external satm. 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.

NOTE 3—When using a solid-pan balance, the air ionizer may be omitted provided that, when weighing a membrane lter, it is placed on the pan so that no part protrudes over the edge of the pan. NOTE 7—Membrane lters with a grid imprinted on their surface, may be used as control membrane lters for identication. Allow 30 min for the membrane lters to come to equilibrium with room air temperature and humidity.

Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415

Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel. Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit.

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.

Unless otherwise indicated, v6217 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. Do not remove the plastic lm from the funnel opening until ready to start ltration.
