ASTM WK36967

    Revision of D7371 - 07 Standard Test Method for Determination of Biodiesel (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) Content in Diesel Fuel Oil Using Mid Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR-ATR-PLS Method)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7371 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.04.0F | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    It is not necessary to calibrate the instrument for measurement ranges for which the instrument is not used. For example, a potential biodiesel blender is blending biodiesel in diesel fuel to a maximum of 5 volume percent. This proposal provides relief from unnecessary calibrations.
