ASTM D3948 2014 Edition, December 1, 2014
Standard Test Method for Determining Water Separation Characteristics of Aviation Turbine Fuels by Portable Separometer
Additional Comments: ALSO SEE ASTM D3948 (R)
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This test method covers a rapid portable means for field and laboratory use to rate the ability of aviation turbine fuels to release entrained or emulsified water when passed through fiberglass coalescing material.
The procedure section of this test method contains two different modes of test equipment operation. The primary difference between the modes of operation is the rate of fuel flow through the fiberglass coalescing material. Test method selection is dependent on the particular fuel to be tested.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
