Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415

Your comments asstm receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation astn fuels and other similar aviation fuels.

Results obtained when analyzing samples with volumes signicantly different than 1 L may have different precision values. Container caps should be handled only externally with clean laboratory crucible tongs during this and subsequent washings.

Summary of Test Method 4. Install the funnel and secure with locking ring or spring clip. D — 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8. Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results.

Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel. Active view current version of standard. Astk Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods.

When ashm is not practical to clean the sample containers in this manner, the containers shall be rinsed three times with the fuel to be sampled. 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time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, asym reapproved or withdrawn.


Maximum particulate levels are specified in several military fuel specifications. D — 98 membrane set consists of a tared nylon test membrane and a tared nylon control membrane.

The information on the precision of this test method was developed with fuels ranging in particulate contamination from d217 0. Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings astj.

asgm NOTE 7—Membrane lters with a grid imprinted on their surface, may be used as control membrane lters for identication. 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. Allow 30 min for the membrane lters to come to equilibrium with room air temperature and humidity.

For fuels containing little particulate materials, only one set of lters is required. With the vacuum applied, carefully separate the funnel from the lter base.

This includes not only all of the fuel but also all rinsings of the interior of the container with ushing uid. Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. D — 98 FIG. Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. 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 stability test.


Maximum particulate levels are specied in several military fuel specications. Reagents and Materials dd6217. Signicance and Use 5.

Do not remove the plastic lm from the funnel opening until ready to start ltration. This allows the fuel to be used for additional analyses.

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. D217 5—Small watch glasses, approximately 5 to 7 cm in diameter, have also been found suitable to support the membrane lters.

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.

The entire contents of the sample container shall be ltered through satm membrane lters to ensure a correct measure of the particulate contamination in the sample. A number in parentheses indicates the year of asgm reapproval. Shake the container r6217 for about 12min. The cooperative test involved 13 laboratories and nine test fuels.

If the original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The two membrane lters used for each individual test shall be identied by marking the petri dishes used to hold and transport the lters.

This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods.
