Active Standard ASTM D5871 | Developed by Subcommittee: D16.01
Book of Standards Volume: 06.04
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers benzene for cyclohexane feedstock. Different tests shall be performed in order to determine the following properties of cyclohexane feedstock: benzene content, sulfur content, thiophene content, toluene plus methylcyclohexane content, methylcyclopentane content, N-hexane content, acid wash color, appearance, color, water content, and solidification point with anhydrous basis.
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.
1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard: for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
