ASTM D8267 Officially Included in Jet Fuel Specification

ASTM D8267 (GC-VUV) has officially been published as an alternative method to ASTM D1319 in the most recent version of the Jet Fuel Specification ASTM D1655–20.

Until now, the only other approved alternative to ASTM D1319 for jet fuel certification was ASTM D6379, an HPLC method. Both D1319 and D6379 come with significant overhead and operational cost. However, the combination of Gas Chromatography with Vacuum Ultraviolet Absorption Spectroscopy Detection (GC-VUV)” as standardized in ASTM D8267 is more precise, operationally easier-to-use, and is ten times (10X) less expensive to operate than ASTM D1319 and five times (5X) less expensive than ASTM D6739,” commented Mr. Clark Jernigan, CEO of VUV Analytics.

ASTM D8267 was also included into a revision of ASTM D3338 “Standard Test Method for Estimation of Net Heat of Combustion of Aviation Fuels”. Net heat of combustion is a requirement of aviation fuel specifications and D3338 is an acceptable alternate to calorimetry methods. The D3338 estimation requires volatility (T10, T50 & T90), gravity and aromatic content. ASTM D8267 can be used to measure aromatics and calculate the net heat of combustion – saving both time and money to the end user.
