This test method covers a method suitable for measuring the total amount of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in heavy distillates, heavy distillate/residual fuel blends, or residual fuels as defined in Specification D396 Grade 4, 5 (Light), 5 (Heavy), and 6, when the H2S concentration in the fuel is in the 0.01 to 100 μg/g (ppmw) range.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
