    Abstract

    The proposed method is suitable for quantitative determination of trace amounts of sediments in gas-oil on the order of 0.001 percent in the presence of water. It is a modification of the ASTM Standard Method of Test for Water and Sediment in Crude Oils and Fuel Oils by Centrifuge (D 1796) and the ASTM Standard Method of Test for Water and Sediment in Distillate Fuels by Centrifuge (D 2709) and uses a 1:1 mixture of toluene and isopropanol as solvent for centrifugation. Its repeatability is on the order of 0.002 percent.
