ASTM WK45485

    Revision of D7321 - 11e1 Standard Test Method for Test Method for Particulate Contamination of Biodiesel B100 Blend Stock Biodiesel Esters and Biodiesel Blends by Laboratory Filtration

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7321 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.14 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This standard was created from the original ASTM D6217 and that standard used two filters; a control filter and a test filter. In creating what has become ASTM D7321 it was recognized that the control filter was not needed. Since the publishing of ASTM D7321 it has become apparent that there was some language remaining in D7321 that still referred to a control filter and thus creating confusion in the use of the standard.
