ASTM WK42098

    Revision of D86 - 12 Standard Test Method for Distillation of Petroleum Products at Atmospheric Pressure

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D86 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.08 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In response to subcommittee member requests to improve the measurement accuracy of viscous residues that adhere to the flask, a new procedure was proposed to aide in the removal of these residues by introduction of a compatible solvent. Following the removal of the combined solvent and residue mixture, the volume of solvent is subtracted from the total volume to determine the volume of the residue.
