    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method is primarily used to monitor the concentration of oxygen in gases to verify gas quality for operational needs and contractual obligations. Oxygen content is a major factor influencing internal corrosion, fuel quality, gas quality, and user and operator safety.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is for the determination of oxygen (O2) in gaseous fuels and fuel type gases. It is applicable to the measurement of oxygen in natural gas and other gaseous fuels. This method can be used to measure oxygen in helium, hydrogen, nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide, mixed gases, process gases, and ambient air. The applicable range is 0.1 ppm(v) to 25% by volume.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the 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.
