Description / Abstract:

This method covers the determination of water and sediment in crude oils and fuel oils by means of the centrifuge. For domestic usage in the United States, refer to ASTM methods D 96-API 2542, Test for Water and Sediment in Crude Oils.2

NOTE 1- With some types of oils it is difficult to obtain water and sediment contents with this method. When this situation is encountered, ASTM Method D 95-API 2560, Test for Water in Petroleum and Other Bituminous Materials or IP 74 and ASTM Method D 473- API 2561 IP 53, Test for Sediment in Crude and Fuel Oils by Extraction,3 may be used.
