Significance and Use
4.1 High-purity ethylene is required as a feedstock for some manufacturing processes and the presence of trace amounts of certain hydrocarbon impurities can have deleterious effects. This test method is suitable for setting specifications, for use as an internal quality control tool, and for use in development or research work.
4.2 This test method does not detect such impurities as H2O, CO, CO2, and alcohols that may be present in the sample. Hydrocarbons higher than n-decane cannot be analyzed by this test method, if present in the sample. Test Method addresses the analysis of noncondensable gases and Test Method addresses the analysis of CO2. Guide describes all potential impurities present in ethylene. These standards should be consulted when determining the total concentration of impurities in ethylene.
