Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit. 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.
Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. Current edition approved Jan. Do not remove the plastic lm from the funnel opening until ready to start ltration. Each 3 4 1. 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.
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.
See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
Preparation of Membrane Filters This includes not only all of the fuel but also all rinsings of the interior of the container with ushing uid. To facilitate the latter, it is advisable to use smaller cleaned graduated transfer cylinders of mL capacity. This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods. Preparation of Apparatus and Sample Containers 8. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected from contamination from the atmosphere.
Ensure that the sample has not passed through intermediate containers prior to placement in the prepared container. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels xstm used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. Ensure that the line to be s6217 is ushed with fuel before taking the sample.
See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.
Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415
Record the nal control membrane lter mass and the nal test membrane lter mass to the nearest 0. NOTE 5—Small aastm glasses, approximately 5 to 7 atm in diameter, have also been found suitable to support the membrane lters. Dry and reweigh the membrane lters as described in Air ionizers shall be replaced within one year of manufacture.
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. Container caps should be handled only externally with clean laboratory crucible tongs during this and subsequent washings. When the level of particulate contamination is low, a single set will asm suffice; when the contamination is high or of a 6d217 that induces slow ltration rates, two or more sets may be required to complete ltration in a reasonable time.
Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel. If the fuel highly contaminated, more than one set of lters may be required see Section Signicance and Use 5. Asttm 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.
See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This test method is suitable for all No. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. However, some fuels, due to the quantity or nature of particulates, or both, may plug the membrane lter during ltration and require use of multiple successive ltrations. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. To facilitate handling, the membrane lters should rest on clean glass support rods, d62117 watch glasses, in petri dish.
The entire contents of the sample container shall be d621 through the membrane lters to ensure a correct measure of the particulate contamination in the sample. Calculation and Report This test method is suitable for all No. If all the fuel has been ltered, thoroughly rinse the sample container and the graduated cylinder with one or more portions of ltered ushing uid and pour the rinses into the funnel and proceed to Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results.
