When it is not practical to clean the sampling lines, rinse them thoroughly with the fuel to be sampled. Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel. 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 Test Method D has been determined to be suitable for testing B and all blends of middle distillates and biodiesel.

Because of this, take care to protect the sample from any external contamination. Precision and Bias Similarly protect the funnel opening of the assembled ltration apparatus with a clean protective cover until ready for use. 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. Current edition approved Jan.

Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415

Maximum particulate levels are specified in several military fuel specifications. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. 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 two membrane lters used for each individual test shall be identied by marking the petri dishes used to hold and transport the lters.


Weigh it, record the initial mass to the nearest 0.

Samples containing biodiesel can result in astn dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. 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by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.

Maximum particulate levels are specied in several military fuel specications. This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods. D — 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8. Clean all glassware used in preparation of membrane lters as described in 8. 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 r6217 settling.

Calculation and Report D217 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. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Glass containers also allow for visual inspection of the container, after the sample is emptied, to conrm complete rinsing of the aetm. Epoxy lined sample cans, polytetrauoroethylene PTFE bottles, d62117 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.

Glass containers are preferred to facilitate a visual inspection of the contents and the container before and after lling. 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. If the fuel highly contaminated, more than one set of lters may be required see Section Each asgm 4 1. Link to Active This link will always route to atsm current Active version of the standard. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


This test method is suitable for all No. Preparation of Membrane Filters Ensure that the line to be sampled is ushed with fuel before taking the sample. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Reagents s6217 Materials 7.

Air ionizers shall be replaced within one year of manufacture. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below. With the vacuum applied, carefully separate the funnel from the lter base.

Your comments are invited either ashm revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

The precision data were obtained by statistical examination of interlaboratory test results using fuels samples of approximately 1 L volume. Where possible, the contents of the tank should be circulated d6127 agitated before sampling, or the sampling performed shortly after a tank has been lled.

This test method provides a means of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample. Allow 30 min for the membrane lters to come to equilibrium with room air temperature and humidity. Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate.

Dry and reweigh the membrane lters as described in 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. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. To minimize operator 4 9.
