When a composite is required, it must consist of proportional parts from each zone if it is for a single tank. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Astmm editio Curren edition n approv approved ed June 1, Therefore, samples to be composited should be submitted to the laboratory along with a list of each tank e5854 the volume represented by each sample. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: This practice also provides additional specific information about astk container selection, preparation, and sample handling.

Regardless of the test method used for water in the acceptance test, it is recommended that the acceptance test results be validated using the water test method normally used to determine water content.

ASTM D5854

Consideration of closure type is important for samples where vapor loss will affect the test results. System Proving Performance Acceptance Tests. Samples should be protected during storage to prevent weathering or degradation from light, heat, or other potential detrimental conditions.


As a minimum there should be one suction port at the lowest sstm in the container. Normally, additional mixing is of no value and often produces diminishing results due to a reduction in viscosity from an increase in temperature. The following annexes outline mixing procedure acceptance testing and present recommended forms for recording the results of such testing. However, it is recognized that all sampling methods do not permit this nor do requirements to transport and store samples.

The sample in the one quart jar must then be returned to the sample container. The following are general design and construction considerations for sample containers. Mixing of the Flowing Stream. The mixer may be an integral part of a stationary sample receiver or a stand-alone unit used for portable sample receivers.

Some petroleum samples are affected by exposure to sunlight if clear glass is used. To add water to sample volumes less than 1 L, use a syringe. Power mixers may entrain air into the sample that could affect certain analytical tests. We are a non-profit group that run this website to share s5854. Normally, it is not necessary to wash new containers.

Sample Mixing Methods 8.

Power mixing is also required when the sample has been transported or stored in either a primary or intermediate container. Safety and Health Precautions 5. Sample Handling and Mixing. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Clear plastic bottles are unsuitable for samples sensitive to light.

Exercise care also to ensure that samples containing free or entrained water are not corrosive to the metal.

ASTM D5854 – 96(2015)

Care must be used when using cork stoppers. Calculate the average water content to the nearest 0.

The treatment of samples from the time of collection until they are analyzed requires care and effort to maintain their compositional integrity. Containers acceptable for samples to be tested immediately may not be acceptable for storage of sample. Values in Column B are calculated from the larger of 0. The suggested mixing time for constant speed circulation mixers is 5 min. Prior to further use, reusable containers such as cans and bottles should be rinsed with a suitable solvent.
