Gum can also be caused by chemical reactions of some fuel components with each other or with oxygen.
ASTM D – 12() Standard Test Method for Gum Content in Fuels by Jet Evaporation
This residue can be a result of, e. Generally, the gum content reflects inappropriate production processes and poor fuel handling in the refinery or the storage facility. The beaker containing the ast, is weighed before and after the evaporation to determine the weight of the gum content, which is then reported as milligrams per mL.
Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials.
Large quantities of gum are an indicator for the contamination of fuel caused by higher boiling oils or particles.
The amount of gum should be as low as possible since the use of fuels with high gum contents can lead to deposits in induction systems or cause intake valves and fuel injectors to stick. With respect to aviation turbine fuels, large quantities of gum are indicative of contamination of fuel by higher boiling oils or particulate matter and generally reflect poor handling practices in distribution downstream of the refinery.
For specific warning statements, see 6. The gum content is the nonvolatile residue that is left after the evaporation of the sample under controlled conditions.
What is the gum content? Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: The amount of gum indicates the condition of the sample at the time of the measurement.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: How can I measure the gum content? During the test procedure, a measured quantity of fuel 50 mL is evaporated under controlled temperature conditions by a constant flow of either hot air or steam, depending on the sample. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
ASTM D – 00 Standard Test Method for Gum Content in Fuels by Jet Evaporation
How to measure the gum content of fuels. It is the responsibility of the s381 of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
It has been proved that high gum can cause induction-system deposits and sticking of intake valves, and in most instances, it can be assumed that low gum will ensure absence of induction-system difficulties.
The primary purpose of the test method, as applied to motor atsm, is the measurement of the oxidation products formed in the sample prior to or during the comparatively mild conditions of the test procedure.
Since many motor gasolines are purposely blended with nonvolatile oils or additives, the heptane asym step is necessary to remove these from the evaporation residue so that the deleterious material, gum, may be determined. The general procedure for the determination of the gum content in fuels is described in the astmm standards: Why is measuring the gum content important?
This is the reason why stabilizing agents, such as oxidation inhibitors, are added in order to increase the fuel stability. The gum content can be used to judge the quality of various products. Density Redefined Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: The residue is washed with heptane after the evaporation to remove any additives the gasoline was initially blended with.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. In contrast to the ASTM and ISO method, the IP method allows both air or steam as the evaporating medium for examining aviation turbine fuels but requires air ast testing motor gasoline.
Seta Existent Gum Solid Block Bath – Steam or Air
The user should, however, realize that the test method is not of itself correlative to induction-system deposits.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The use of air, on the other hand, is used for testing motor gasoline.
