ASTM WK39810

    Work Item: ASTM WK39810 - Revision of D5705 - 12 Standard Test Method for Measurement of Hydrogen Sulfide in the Vapor Phase Above Residual Fuel Oils

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5705 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.E0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    Details of a suitable apparatus for shaking the sample were previously removed from the method, probably due to the unavailability of the apparatus. However details of the requirement are required. The original specification of the shaker and a check on the operation of an existing apparatus has shown that a shaker with an orbit of 1.9 mm is suitable for this test.
