Standard Test Methods for Volumetric Measurement of Gaseous Fuel Samples

Significance and Use

The knowledge of the volume of samples used in a test is necessary for meaningful results. Validity of the volume measurement equipment and procedures must be assured for accurate results.

Scope

1.1 These test methods cover the volumetric measuring of gaseous fuel samples, including liquefied petroleum gases, in the gaseous state at normal temperatures and pressures. The apparatus selected covers a sufficient variety of types so that one or more of the methods prescribed may be employed for laboratory, control, reference, or in fact any purpose where it is desired to know the quantity of gaseous fuel or fuel samples under consideration. The various types of apparatus are listed in Table 1.

1.2This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
