The amount of gum should be as low as possible since the use of fuels with high gum contents can lead to deposits in induction systems or cause intake valves and fuel injectors to stick. The gum content astn the nonvolatile residue that is left after the evaporation of the sample under controlled conditions.
Gum can also be caused by chemical reactions of some fuel components with each other or with oxygen. Why is measuring the gum content important?
Since the gum content can change according to the age of the fuel and the exposure to oxygen, the reported content is only true at the time of measurement. Large quantities of gum are an indicator for the contamination of fuel caused by higher boiling oils or particles.
This residue can be a result of, e. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to 3d81 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The gum content can be used to judge the quality of various products. The beaker containing the sample is weighed before and after the evaporation to determine the weight of the gum content, which is then reported as milligrams per mL.
How to measure the gum content of fuels. With respect to aviation turbine fuels, large quantities of gum are indicative of contamination of fuel ashm higher boiling oils or particulate matter and generally reflect poor handling practices in distribution downstream of the refinery. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: The general procedure for the determination of the gum content in fuels is described in the following standards: The primary purpose of the test method, as applied to motor gasoline, is the measurement of the oxidation products formed in the sample prior to or during the comparatively mild conditions of the test procedure.
This is the reason why stabilizing agents, such as oxidation inhibitors, are added in order to increase the fuel stability. Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: No other units of measurement are asrm in this standard. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to xstm.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part d3881 the standard. The use of air, on the other hand, is used for testing motor gasoline. Density Redefined Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: Generally, the gum content reflects inappropriate production processes and poor fuel handling in the refinery or the storage facility.
The residue is washed with heptane after the evaporation to remove any additives the gasoline was initially blended with. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The quality of different fuels, e.
In contrast to the ASTM and ISO method, the IP method allows both air or steam as the evaporating medium for examining aviation turbine fuels but requires air for testing motor gasoline.
What is the gum content?

In this case, the wstm containing the residue is weighed before and after the washing procedure. The amount of gum indicates the condition of the sample at the time of the measurement.
ASTM D – 12() Standard Test Method for Gum Content in Fuels by Jet Evaporation
During the test procedure, a measured quantity of fuel 50 mL is evaporated under controlled temperature conditions by a constant flow of either hot air or steam, depending on the sample. It has been proved that high gum can cause induction-system deposits and sticking of intake valves, and in most instances, it can be assumed that low gum will ensure absence of induction-system difficulties.
For motor gasoline an additional treatment is necessary: How can I measure the gum content? The user should, however, realize that the test method is not of itself correlative to d31 deposits.
