|Significance and Use|
5.1The boiling range distribution of FAMES provides an insight into the composition of product related to the transesterification process. This gas chromatographic determination of boiling range can be used to replace conventional distillation methods for product specification testing with the mutual agreement of interested parties.
5.2Biodiesel (FAMES) exhibits a boiling point rather than a distillation curve. The fatty acid chains in the raw oils and fats from which biodiesel is produced are mainly comprised of straight chain hydrocarbons with 16 to 18 carbons that have similar boiling temperatures. The atmospheric boiling point of biodiesel generally ranges from 330C to 357C. The Specification value of 360C max at 90% off by Test Method was incorporated as a precaution to ensure the fuel has not been adulterated with high boiling contaminants.
1.1This test method covers the determination of the boiling range distribution of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). This test method is applicable to FAMES (biodiesel, B100) having an initial boiling point greater than 100C and a final boiling point less than 615C at atmospheric pressure as measured by this test method.
1.2The test method can also be applicable to blends of diesel and biodiesel (B1 through B100), however precision for these samples types has not been evaluated.
1.3The test method is not applicable for analysis of petroleum containing low molecular weight components (for example naphthas, reformates, gasolines, crude oils).
1.4Boiling range distributions obtained by this test method are not equivalent to results from low efficiency distillation such as those obtained with Test Method or , especially the initial and final boiling points.
1.5This test method uses the principles of simulated distillation methodology. See Test Methods , , and .
1.6The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.7This 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.
1.8This 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.
