New ASTM Method D 7345 for the PMD 100 & 110 Products

Mar 12 2008 Read 1316 Times

PAC LP announces the approval of a new ASTMmethod D 7345 for the PMD 100 & 110 products. The newMicro Distillationmethod covers a procedure for determination of the distillation characteristics of petroleum products having a boiling range between 20 to 400°C at atmospheric pressure.
The ASTM D 7345 covers sample range of light & middle distillates, automotive spark-ignition engine fuels, aviation gasoline, aviation turbine fuels, regular & low sulfur diesel fuels, biodiesel, 10% Ethanol blend, special petroleum spirits, naphtha, white spirits, kerosene, burner fuels and marine fuels. The new Micro Distillation test method significantly reduces sample volume and test time required to conduct the distillation.
To derive precision for new distillation method and its correlation to ASTM D 86, ASTM conducted a global interlaboratory study consisting of 33 fuel samples, including biofuels, and 20 laboratories. With reference to ASTM Research Report RR D02 - 1621, the Micro Distillation technology is precise, has comparable precision and good correlation with ASTM D86.
The method offers fast result within 6 to 8 minutes and requires only a low sample size of 10 ml. The PMD system is easy to use by one button operation and requires no apparatus conditioning or cleaning. Other benefits are the portable design and precise results from the first run.
