    Abstract

    This specification covers two grades of kerosine suitable for use in critical kerosine burner applications: no. 1-K - a special low-sulfur grade kerosine suitable for use in nonflue-connected kerosine burner appliances and for use in wick-fed illuminating lamps, and no. 1-K - a special low-sulfur grade kerosine suitable for use in nonflue-connected kerosine burner appliances and for use in wick-fed illuminating lamps. Kerosine shall be a refined petroleum distillate consisting of a homogeneous mixture of hydrocarbons essentially free of water, inorganic acidic or basic compounds, and excessive amounts of particulate contaminants. The flash point, distillation range, viscosity requirements, sulphur requirements, mercaptan sulphur, copper strip corrosion, freezing point, burning quality, and saybolt color shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers two grades of kerosine suitable for use in critical kerosine burner applications:

    1.1.1 No. 1-K—A special low-sulfur grade kerosine suitable for use in nonflue-connected kerosine burner appliances and for use in wick-fed illuminating lamps.

    1.1.2 No. 2-K—A regular grade kerosine suitable for use in flue-connected burner appliances and for use in wick-fed illuminating lamps.

    1.2 This specification is intended for use in purchasing, as a reference for industry and governmental standardization, and as a source of technical information.

    1.3 This specification, unless otherwise provided by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, prescribes the required properties of kerosine at the time and place of custody transfer.

    Note 1The generation and dissipation of static electricity can create problems in the handling of kerosines. For more information on the subject, see Guide D4865.

    1.4 Nothing in this specification shall preclude observance of federal, state, or local regulations which can be more restrictive.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
