Standard Practice for Preservation of Waterborne Oil Samples


1.1 This practice covers the preservation of waterborne oil samples from the time of collection to the time of analysis. Information is provided to ensure sample integrity and to avoid contamination and to minimize microbial degradation.

1.2 The practice is for controlled field or laboratory conditions and specifies thorough preparation of equipment and precise operation. Where these details must be compromised in a field emergency, nonstandard simplifications are recommended that will minimize or eliminate consequent errors.

Note 1-Procedures for the analysis of oil spill samples are Practices D 3326, D 3415, D 3650, and D 4489, and Test Methods D 3327, D 3328, D 3414, and D 5037. A guide to the use of ASTM test methods for the analysis of oil spill samples is found in Practice D 3415.

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. For a specific hazard statement, see Note 3.
