Revision of D6448-16(2022) Standard Specification for Industrial Burner Fuels from Used Lubricating Oils


Consistency of use of words is important for the intended understanding of standards. In Committee D02 consistency is improved by having one definition for each term. That definition is applicable to all uses of the term in all D02 standards. The current definition of “burner fuel oil” in D6448 does not apply to the use of the term in D396 or its use in commerce because it restricts the resource for the liquid to petroleum. This proposal deletes “petroleum” so that the resource may be any suitable material. This change does not affect the requirements in either specification D6448 or D396.
