Glass containers are preferred to facilitate a visual inspection of the contents and the container before c6217 after lling. 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.

With the vacuum applied, carefully separate the funnel from the lter base.

Reagents and Materials 7. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.

Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415

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. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. 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by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.


Results obtained when analyzing samples with volumes signicantly different than 1 L may have different precision values. Using 1 gal of a middle distillate fuel, which can contain greater particulate levels, often required excessive time to complete the ltration.

This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods. Each 3 4 1. If the original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained. Preparation of Apparatus and Sample Containers 8. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Precision and Bias Current edition approved Jan. The two membrane lters used for each individual test shall be identied by marking the petri dishes used to hold and transport the lters. The cooperative test involved 13 laboratories and nine test fuels. Summary of Test Method 4.

This test method is suitable for all No. Similarly protect the funnel opening of the assembled ltration apparatus with a clean protective cover until ready for use. Container caps should be handled only externally with clean laboratory crucible tongs during this and subsequent washings. D — 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8.

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. See Guide D for a more detailed discussion of static electricity formation and atsm. This allows the fuel to be used for additional analyses. The precision data were obtained by statistical examination of interlaboratory test results using fuels samples of approximately 1 L volume.

Samples should preferentially be obtained dynamically from a sampling loop in a distribution line, or from the ushing line of a eld sampling kit. 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.


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. Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results.

It is the responsibility qstm the user of aatm standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels. Both grade 1 and grade 2 diesel fuels were used in the testing.

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. Test Method D and its predecessor Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. When it is not practical to clean the sampling lines, rinse them thoroughly with the fuel to be sampled. Calculation and Report This includes not only all of the fuel but also all rinsings of the interior of the container with ushing uid.

Dry and reweigh the membrane lters as described in NOTE 5—Small watch glasses, approximately 5 to 7 cm in diameter, have also been found suitable to support the membrane lters.
