    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 05.06, 2016 Defines the determination of total volatile sulfur in gaseous hydrocarbons, Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This test method covers the determination of total volatile sulfur in gaseous hydrocarbons, Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). It is applicable to analysis of natural gaseous fuels, process intermediates, final product hydrocarbons and generic gaseous fuels containing sulfur in the range of 1 to 200 mg/kg. Samples can also be tested at other total sulfur levels using either pre-concentration methods or sample dilution using a diluent gas. The methodology for preconcentration and dilution techniques is not covered in this test method. The precision statement does not apply if these techniques are used in conjunction with this test method. The diluent gas, such as UHP nitrogen, zero nitrogen or zero air, shall not have a significant total sulfur concentration.

    1.2This test method may not detect sulfur compounds that do not volatilize under the conditions of the test.

    1.3This test method covers the laboratory determination and the at-line/on-line determination of total volatile sulfur in gaseous fuels, LPG, and LNG.

    1.4This test method is applicable for total volatile sulfur determination in gaseous hydrocarbons, LPG, and LNG containing less than 0.35 mole % halogen(s).

    1.5The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.6This 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. See Sections 4.1, 7.3, 7.4, 11.2, and Section 8.
