Revision of D2880-18a Standard Specification for Gas Turbine Fuel Oils

Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

This ballot is to provide needed changes to the ASTM Standard Specification D2880 to update the test methods, the sulfur grades to correspond to other Subcommittee E middle distillate fuel standards and to add provisions for the inclusion of up to 5 % by volume biodiesel, similar to what has been done for ASTM D396 and ASTM D975. The sulfur tables are modeled after those recently balloted and approved for ASTM D396, and requirements are added for conductivity and lubricity as has been done in D975 and D396. Other changes currently being considered for Sub E standards will be considered for D2880 as appropriate. This is collaboration between gas turbine interests led by Dr. Priyank Saxena of Solar Turbine, a leading manufacturer of land based gas turbines, and the ASTM Biodiesel Task Force and is the first ballot of this item.
