    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered the determination of the solubilities of nonreactive gases such as nitrogen and helium in liquids that boil below 273 K. This test method was applicable at temperatures from 77 K to 300 K from subambient pressure to 6.5 MPa (65 atm). This test method did not provide for analysis of the vapor phase in equilibrium with the liquid.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in December 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the solubilities of nonreactive gases such as nitrogen and helium in liquids that boil below 273 K. This test method is applicable at temperatures from 77 to 300 K from subambient pressure to 6.5 MPa (65 atm). This test method does not provide for analysis of the vapor phase in equilibrium with the liquid (see Section 3 for a description of terms).

    1.2 This test method as written describes the procedures to be followed for determination of the solubilities of helium and nitrogen. If suitable modifications are made to the analytical measurements by gas chromatography, solubilities of other gases such as argon, hydrogen, oxygen, etc., can be determined.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. In cases where materials, products, or equipment are available in inch-pound units only, SI units are omitted.

    1.4 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. For specific hazard statements, see 6.1.2 and 7.1 and Annex A1.
