    Significance and Use

    This test method measures the hydrocarbon oils added to sulfur to help control dusting of the sulfur. It can be used for research, development, and quality control to measure the level of oil added to the sulfur to help maintain the oil content at required levels.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the amount of hydrocarbon oils added to oil-treated sulfurs. The test method is employed when the amount of oil added is 1 % or more of the total sample.

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

    1.3 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.
