This test covers the quantification of pipeline drag reducer additive in aviation turbine fuels to a 50 ppb concentration level. The method uses gel permeation chromatography (GPC) to separate sheared DRA from the jet fuel stream. A two-stage concentration of the fuel sample using a rotovap and evaporation module is required. The degree of sample concentration required depends upon the expected level of DRA in the sample. An evaporative light scattering interfaced to the GPC detector (ELSD) is used for quantification
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
