The higher alcohols found in methyl fuel consist.

Manufacturer’s data sheets for methanol. Applicable to crude oils and fuel oils based on petroleum. Results are usually re- ported on an “as received” basis or on a “dry” basis. Analysis is by either the Kjeldahl-Gunning or an alter- native method.

These are the approximate sample requirements for a single analysis of a material for which the method is directly applicable. Still, some loss of moisture may have occurred in shipping. Gaseous Fuels Virtually all gaseous reference mixtures are prepared by blending pure com- ponents, both by weight and by volume, rather than analyzing a “real” sam- ple. One chamber of the apparatus is filled with a chilled sample, and connected to an air chamber at Sulfur is deter- mined as BaSO, after sample is heated with the Eschka mixture in a controlled manner and sul- fur containing residue extracted with hot water.

Waste Lubricating Oil A sample of waste lubricating oil from automobile crank cases was ob- tained from a service garage in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on March 8, Second, caution should be used in the comparison of any precision informa- tion given in Table VII-3 that derives from tests on coal and coke.

Liquid Fuels A listing of reference’ materials available for liquid fuels is given in Table A Third, because the moisture content of RDSF may be highly variable – and high on an absolute scale as well – it is suggested that analytical results be reported on a “moisture-free” basis. While it is expected that the listed methods will be generally applicable to shale oil and coal liquids, this has yet to be proven by laboratory tests.

The amount of acid neutralized is determined by titration with sodium hydrox- ide. Should be applicable to SO -and CL. Gaseous Fuels 98 B. With two exceptions, the methods of analysis discussed herein, may be placed into two categories: Method specified by ASTM for testing of methanol.

Mass spectrometry affords qualitative identification of major components. Should be appli- cable to MF. Liquefied petroleum gas 2. The time in seconds it takes a fixed volume of sample to flow through a capillary is measured.

It should be noted that none of the listed methods were developed for specific applicability to shale oil and coal liquids. The material is produced by subjecting raw municipal refuse to the following series of operations: To carry out this procedure, the follow- ing general steps1 should be followed: These studies relate to EPA’s mission to protect the public health and welfare from adverse effects of pollutants associated with energy systems.


This transfer was in accordance with ASTM’s plans to phase-out non-metric methods of test for petroleum products. The fuels are specified according to physical and use-related para- meters and, therefore, may differ in chemical composition from sample to sample. The sulflde is treated with acidified solu- tion of an aromatic amlne and ferric chloride catalyst to form methylene blue due which is measured by colorimetry.

The results from two laboratories agreed, in most cases, within the reproduci- bility limits for the method. Statistical sub-sampling to convenient working weights; 3. Shale Fuel Oil A sample of a shale oil distillate was obtained from a private source. See Refer- ence 01 for details. After mer- cury Is precipitated with so- dium sulfide, the solution is made alkaline with sodium hy- droxide and the liberated ammonia distilled Into an acid solution.

Of all the possible variables which affect the characteristics of shale oil, the method of production is, by far, the most significant. Salt water contamination in the tanks is the source of the chlorides.

Estimates based on prices charged by analytical service laboratories for petroleum products or water in early
