ASTM Issues New Revisions To D-2699 and D-2700

ASTM ISSUES NEW REVISIONS TO STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR RESEARCH OCTANE NUMBER OF SPARK-IGNITION ENGINE FUE,  D-2699 -13b and STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR MOTOR OCTANE NUMBER OF SPARK-IGNITION ENGINE FUEL, D-2700 – 13b

ASTM has published revisions of the following two specifications STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR RESEARCH OCTANE NUMBER OF SPARK-IGNITION ENGINE FUE,  D-2699 -13b and STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR MOTOR OCTANE NUMBER OF SPARK-IGNITION ENGINE FUEL, D-2700 – 13b. These test methods cover the quantitative determination of the knock rating of spark-ignition fuels in terms of Research Octane Number and Motor Octane Number, respectively. Section 8.3 in each of the specifications describes the Primary Reference Fuels (PRF) used in these tests. Previous revisions of these specifications identified specific manufacturers of these products as there were only a very limited number of suppliers that provided these reference products. However, in 2012, Haltermann Solutions introduced a family of PRF octane products including the products listed in section 8.3. Introduction of these products and recognition that there was now more than just a single supplier was recognized by the ASTM membership responsible for the stewardship of these specifications. They felt, given this change, that there was no longer the need to identify specific PRF manufacturers in the specifications and the company names were subsequently removed.

Haltermann Solutions PRF product portfolio now included PRF grade iso-octane, n-heptane, toluene and NO. 80 octane blend. Haltermann also manufactures cetane reference products.

Haltermann Solutions Introduces Diesel Cetane Check Fuels – High and Low

Thu, Jan 9th 2014, 13:13 by Wayne Petersen

Haltermann Solutions is pleased to introduce two new diesel cetane reference fuel products: Diesel Cetane Check Fuel – High (Haltermann designation HF-3006) and Diesel Cetane Check Fuel – Low (Haltermann designation HF-3005).  These fuels complement Haltermann’s current line of PRF products for octane measurement which include Primary Reference Fuel (PRF) grade iso-octane, n-heptane, toluene and No.80 octane blend.

The cetane numbers (ASTM D-613) for the high and low check fuels were determined to be 55.48 and 40.14, respectively. This data is from ASTM Subcommittee D02.01 Section E on Reference Materials (Report No. D1079) and was based on round-robin certification tests performed by the Diesel National Exchange.

The products are now in inventory and available for immediate shipment.

Watch for additions to the Haltermann portfolio of octane and cetane reference products in the near future.
