ASTM D6371: Standard Test Method for Cold Filter Plugging Point of Diesel and Heating Fuels
SDO: ASTM: ASTM International
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This test method covers the determination of the cold filter plugging point (CFPP) temperature of diesel and domestic heating fuels using either manual or automated apparatus.
NOTE 1—This test method is technically equivalent to test methods IP 309 and EN 116.
The manual apparatus and automated apparatus are both suitable for referee purposes.
This test method is applicable to distillate fuels, including those containing a flow-improving or other additive, intended for use in diesel engines and domestic heating installations.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
WARNING—Mercury has been designated by many regulatory agencies as a hazardous material that can cause central nervous system, kidney and liver damage. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products. See the applicable product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for details and EPA's website—http://www.epa.gov/mercury/faq.htm—for additional information. Users should be aware that selling mercury and/or mercury containing products into your state or country may be prohibited by law.
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. For specific warning statements, see Section 7.
