Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Reagents and Materials 7. To facilitate the latter, it is advisable to use smaller cleaned graduated transfer cylinders of mL capacity.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. NOTE 10—Some fuels may lter reasonably rapidly during transfer of the total contents of the sample container through a single set of lter membranes.

The information on the precision of e6217 test method was developed with fuels ranging in particulate contamination from approximately 0.

For fuels containing little particulate materials, only one set of lters is required. This standard has either been superceded and replaced by a new version or discontinued.

Precision and Bias Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.


Similarly protect the funnel opening of the assembled ltration apparatus with a clean protective cover until ready for use. Ensure that the sample has not passed through intermediate containers prior to placement in the prepared container.

Dry and reweigh the membrane lters as described in See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. NOTE 9—Caution—Samples obtained from static storage may give results which are not representative of the bulk contents of the tank because of particulate matter settling.

Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. Container caps should be handled only externally with clean laboratory crucible tongs during this and subsequent washings.

Summary of Test Method 4. This test method is suitable for all No. Calculation and Report Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

NOTE 5—Small watch glasses, approximately 5 to 7 cm in diameter, have also been found suitable to support the membrane lters. This test method provides a means of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample. This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods.

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. 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. If the original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained. 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.


Weigh it, record the initial mass to the nearest 0. When it is not practical to clean the sample containers in this manner, the containers shall be rinsed three times with the fuel to be sampled.

NOTE 2—The electrical d621 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. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample.

Air ionizers shall be replaced within one year of manufacture. To facilitate ast, the membrane lters should rest on clean glass support rods, or watch glasses, in petri dish.

D — 98 exposure to fumes, the ltering procedure should be performed in a fume hood. Shake the container vigorously for about 12min. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Install the funnel and secure with locking ring or spring clip. 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.
