ASTM WK24757

    New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Fluoride, Chloride and Sulfur in LPG by Oxidative Pyrohydrolytic Combustion followed by Ion Chromatography Detection (Combustion Ion Chromatography-CIC)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.H0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1.This test method covers the individual determination of total fluorine, chlorine and sulfur in aromatic hydrocarbons and their mixtures. Samples containing 0.1 to 2,500 mg/kg of each element can be analyzed.

    4.1.The total fluorine, chlorine and sulfur contained in LPG can be harmful to many catalytic chemical processes, lead to corrosion, contribute to emissions pollutants and are listed in LPG product specifications. This test method can be used to determine total fluorine, chlorine and sulfur in process and finished LPG products and can be used for compliance determinations when acceptable to a regulatory authority when acceptable to a regulatory authority using performance based criteria..


    combustion ion chromatography, ion chromatography, combustion, fluorine, fluoride, chlorine, chloride, sulfur; sulfate, LPG, liquefied petroleum gas, pyrohydrolysis, pyrohydrolytic.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
