1.1 This test method covers the determination of the volume of free water and sediment (as a percentage of the sample) that is suspended in the bulk fuel in middle distillate fuels with viscosities in the range of 1.0 mm2/s to 4.1 mm2/s at 40 °C (1.0 cSt to 4.1 cSt at 104 °F) and densities in the range of 770 kg/m3 to 900 kg/m3 at 15 °C.
Note 1: Fuels corresponding to Specification Grades No. 1 and 2, Grades No. 1-D and 2-D, Specification Grades No. 0-GT, 1-GT and 2-GT, and Specification Grades No. 1-K and 2-K and similar middle distillate fuels and blendstocks will usually fall in this viscosity and density range. Test Method is intended for higher viscosity fuel oils.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
1.2.1 Exception—The non-SI values are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
