ASTM issues standards on CD-ROM

By | December 01, 2005
ASTM International has made it more convenient to access information on the ASTM standards affecting biodiesel. In October, ASTM released a new CD-ROM containing the latest edition of ASTM standards D 6751 and all 35 referenced ASTM documents.

The convenient and easy-to-use CD-ROM includes PDF files of the detailed and specific ASTM standards related to biodiesel. It is an excellent source for anyone needing information about D 6751 and its specific requirements.

In 2001, ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants approved Standard Specification D 6751 for Biodiesel Fuel Blend Stock for Distillate Fuels. In this standard, biodiesel is defined as "a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, designated B100."

A sample of the contents includes test methods for D93 flash point by Pensky-Martens closed cup tester, D 130 corrosiveness to copper from petroleum products by copper strip test, D 445 kinematic viscosity of transparent and opaque liquids, D 2500 cloud point of petroleum products, and many more. It also includes a guide for D 4865 generation and dissipation of static electricity in petroleum fuel systems, and D 6469 microbial contamination in fuels and fuel systems.

The CD-ROM is available for $85. To order the CD-ROM or for more information, please contact ASTM by phone at (610) 832-9585, fax at (610) 832-9555 or via e-mail at service@astm.org. Information is also available online at www.astm.org.
