Revision of D7963-21 Standard Test Method for Determination of Contamination Level of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters in Middle Distillate and Residual Fuels Using Flow Analysis by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy—Rapid Screening Method


Revision to add a Section on interferences. As discussed in the December 2021 D02.14 meeting, this method is unable to distinguish between FAME and triglyceride. A suitable definition for triglycerides is in D4175. As such it is appropriate to add the reference to D4175 at the same time.
