ASTM D3325: Standard Practice for Preservation of Waterborne Oil Samples
SDO: ASTM: ASTM International
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This practice covers the preservation of waterborne oil samples from the time of collection to the time of analysis. Information is provided to ensure sample integrity and to avoid contamination and to minimize microbial degradation.
The practice is for controlled field or laboratory conditions and specifies thorough preparation of equipment and precise operation. Where these details must be compromised in a field emergency, nonstandard simplifications are recommended that will minimize or eliminate consequent errors.
NOTE 1—Procedures for the analysis of oil spill samples are Practices D3326, D3415, D3650, and D4489, and Test Methods D3327, D3328, and D3414. A guide to the use of ASTM test methods for the analysis of oil spill samples is found in Practice D3415.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
