Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products.

During the test procedure, a measured quantity of fuel 50 mL s381 evaporated under controlled temperature conditions by a constant flow of either hot air or steam, depending on the atm. What is the gum content? The use of air, on the other hand, is used for testing motor gasoline. Generally, the gum content reflects inappropriate production processes and poor fuel handling in the refinery or the storage facility. In this case, the beaker containing the residue is weighed before and after the washing procedure.

The residue is washed with heptane after the evaporation to remove any additives the gasoline was initially blended with. How to measure the gum content of fuels. The amount of gum indicates the condition of the sample at the time of the measurement.

The quality of different fuels, e. The general procedure for the determination of the gum content in fuels is described in the following standards: The primary purpose of the test method, as applied to motor gasoline, is the measurement of the oxidation products formed in the sample prior to or during the comparatively mild conditions of the test procedure.


This is the reason why stabilizing agents, such as oxidation inhibitors, are added in order to increase the fuel stability.

The user should, however, realize that the test method is not of itself correlative to induction-system deposits. Density Redefined Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: Large quantities of gum are an indicator for the contamination of axtm caused by higher boiling oils or particles.

For specific warning statements, see 6. Mercury, satm its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. The beaker containing the sample is weighed before and after the evaporation to determine the weight of the gum content, which is then reported as milligrams per mL. Since the gum content can change according to the age of the fuel and the exposure to oxygen, the reported content is only true at the time of measurement.

This residue can be a result of, e.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and d81 the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Since many motor gasolines are purposely blended with nonvolatile oils or additives, the heptane extraction step is necessary to remove these from the evaporation residue so that the deleterious material, gum, may be determined.

  EN ISO 15614-2 PDF

The amount of gum should be as low as possible since the use of fuels with high gum contents can lead to deposits in induction systems or cause intake valves and fuel injectors to stick. With respect to aviation turbine fuels, large quantities of gum are indicative of contamination of fuel by higher boiling oils or particulate matter and generally reflect poor handling practices in distribution downstream of the refinery.

Gum can also be caused by chemical reactions of some fuel components with each other or with oxygen. The gum content can be used to judge the quality of various products. In contrast to the ASTM and ISO method, the IP method allows both air or steam as the evaporating medium for examining aviation turbine fuels but requires air for testing motor gasoline. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: How can I measure the gum content?

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The gum content is the nonvolatile residue that is left after the evaporation of the sample under controlled conditions. For motor gasoline an additional treatment is necessary: By using our website you consent to all cookies in accordance with our Cookie Policy.

Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: It has been proved that high gum can cause induction-system deposits and sticking of intake valves, and in most instances, it can be assumed that low gum will ensure absence of induction-system difficulties.
