Sampling NOTE 8—Caution—It is important to note that the entire contents of the sample container are ltered during the conduct of this test method.
Do not remove the plastic lm from the funnel opening until ready to start ltration. To facilitate handling, the membrane lters should rest on clean glass support rods, or watch glasses, in petri dish.

Filtration System for ASTM D6217, IP 415
Calculation and Report Do not transfer the fuel sample from its original sample container into an intermediate storage container. This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods. Preparation of Membrane Filters See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specication D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels.
This test method provides a means of assessing the mass of particulates present in a fuel sample. Keep the fuel sample ltrate separate from the solvent washings ltrate.
Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. With the vacuum applied, d2617 separate the funnel from the lter base.
Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. D — 98 containers, their caps and petri dishes as described in 8. Install the funnel and secure with locking ring or spring clip. Test Method D and its ast Test Method D were developed for aviation fuels and used 1 gal or 5 L of fuel sample. A fuel and solvent resistance rubber hose through which the grounding wire passes shall connect the sidearm of the receiving ask to the tube passing through the rubber stopper in the top of the safety ask.

The r6217 test involved 13 laboratories and nine test fuels. To minimize operator 4 9. D — 98 membrane set consists of a tared nylon test membrane and a tared nylon control membrane. Glass containers are preferred to facilitate a visual d621 of qstm contents and the container before and after lling. See Test Methods D and D for means of determining particulate contamination in Specification D aviation turbine fuels and other similar aviation fuels.
NOTE 5—Small watch glasses, approximately 5 to 7 cm in diameter, have also been found suitable to support the membrane lters. 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. Historical Version s – view previous versions astmm standard.
If v6217 original sample container or damaged or leaking, then a new sample must be obtained. Samples containing biodiesel can result in partial dissolution or compromise of the membrane filters and give erroneous results. Reagents and Materials 7.
A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change asm the last revision or reapproval. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
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. If all the fuel has been ltered, thoroughly rinse the sample container and the graduated cylinder with astj or more portions of ltered ushing uid and pour the rinses into the funnel and proceed to When it is not practical to clean the sample containers in this manner, the containers shall be rinsed three times with the fuel to be sampled.
NOTE 7—Membrane lters with a grid imprinted on their surface, may be used as control membrane lters for identication. 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.
Higher levels of particulate contaminant can be measured, but are subject to uncertain precision. D — 98 c6217 participants using both water aspirated and mechanical vacuum systems with vacuums ranging from 1 to kPa. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Place the weighed test membrane lter on top of the control membrane lter.
This test method used about a quarter of the volume used in the aviation fuel methods. The entire contents of the sample container shall be ltered through the membrane lters to ensure a correct measure of the particulate contamination in the sample. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.
Glass containers also allow for visual inspection of the container, after the sample is emptied, to conrm complete rinsing of the container. Summary of Test Method 4.
Keep the petri dish cover ajar, but such that the membrane lters are still protected astn contamination from the atmosphere. If you feel that your comments have not received a aztm hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below. Maintain vacuum after the nal washing for 10 to 15 s to remove excess ltered ushing uid from the membrane lter. Current edition approved Jan. Ensure that the line to be sampled is ushed with fuel before taking the sample.
