Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
5.1 This test method provides a measure of trace amounts of unsaturated hydrocarbons in petroleum distillates boiling up to 288°C (550°F). An estimate of the quantity of these materials is useful in assessing the suitability of the lighter fractions for use as reaction solvents.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the amount of bromine-reactive material in petroleum hydrocarbons and is thus a measure of trace amounts of unsaturates in these materials. It is applicable to materials having bromine indexes below 1000.
1.2 This test method is applicable only to essentially olefin-free hydrocarbons or mixtures that are substantially free from material lighter than isobutane and have a distillation end point under 288°C (550°F).
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
