Standard Test Method for Burning Quality of Kerosene

Status : Current   Published : April 2018



1.1 This test method covers the qualitative determination of the burning properties of kerosene to be used for illuminating purposes. ( Warning—Combustible. Vapor harmful.)

Note 1:  The corresponding Energy Institute (IP) test method is IP 10 which features a quantitative evaluation of the wick-char-forming tendencies of the kerosene, whereas Test Method D187 features a qualitative performance evaluation of the kerosene. Both test methods subject the kerosene to somewhat more severe operating conditions than would be experienced in typical designated applications.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific warning statements appear throughout the test method.

1.4  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
