ASTM D Standard Test Method for Particulate Contamination in Middle Distillate Fuels by Laboratory Filtration. standard by ASTM. Method reference ASTM D is used to determine the mass of particulate ASTM D determines the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample which . This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D02 on.

Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate.
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. Calculation and Report Glass containers also allow for visual inspection of the container, after the sample is satm, to conrm complete rinsing of the container. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected from contamination from the atmosphere.

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. NOTE 7—Membrane 6d217 with a grid imprinted on their surface, may be used as control membrane lters for identication. A standard laboratory wash bottle can also be used provided the ushing uid is pre-ltered through a 0.
This test method is suitable for all No. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.
Dry and reweigh the membrane lters as described in Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends d217 middle d217 and biodiesel. The two membrane lters used for each individual test shall be identied by marking the petri dishes used to d617 and transport the lters. Maximum particulate levels are specified in several military fuel specifications.
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.
If the fuel highly contaminated, more than one set of lters may be required see Section 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.
Preparation of Apparatus and Sample Containers 8. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample.
Ensure that the line to be sampled is ushed with fuel before taking the sample. Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit. When it is not practical to clean the sampling lines, rinse them thoroughly with the fuel to be sampled. See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and discharge. 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.
If the original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained.

Protect the fuel sample from prolonged exposure to light by wrapping r6217 container in aluminum foil or storing it in the dark to reduce the possibility of particulate formation by light-promoted reactions. 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. 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. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Place the weighed test membrane lter on top of the control membrane lter.
See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject adtm but are not provided as part of the standard. For fuels containing little particulate materials, only one set of lters is required.
Weigh f6217, record the initial mass to the nearest 0. This standard has s6217 been superceded and replaced by a new version or discontinued.
