|Significance and Use|
4.1The Calculated Cetane Index is one tool available for estimating ASTM cetane number where a test engine is not available for determining this property. It may be employed for approximating cetane number where the quantity of sample is too small for an engine rating. In cases where the cetane number of a fuel has been initially established, the index is useful as a cetane number check on subsequent samples of that fuel, provided its source and mode of manufacture remain unchanged.
4.2Test Method may also be used to approximate the ASTM cetane number of diesel fuels.
4.2.1Procedure A of Test Method was developed as a result of a larger degree of offset between Test Method Cetane Index and the results of Test Method over the entire range of the correlation. Generally, it has been found that use of Test Method results in less offset than use of Test Method , but there can be specific cases where this is not true.
4.2.2Procedure A of Test Method is recommended to estimate the cetane number of diesel fuels with sulfur contents above 500 ppm or No. 1D diesel fuels.
4.2.3Procedure B of Test Method is recommended to estimate the cetane number of No. 2D diesel fuels with sulfur contents at or below 500 ppm.
4.3Calculated Cetane Index, as described in Test Method 80, is recognized by the United States EPA as an alternative method to meet the U.S. Federal Diesel aromatics limit for diesel fuels containing less than 500 ppm sulfur. The equation for Calculated Cetane Index in Test Method 80 and in this version ( 06) of the test method are the same.
1.1This test method covers the Calculated Cetane Index formula, which represents a means for directly estimating the ASTM cetane number of distillate fuels from API gravity and mid-boiling point. The index value, as computed from the formula, is termed the Calculated Cetane Index.1.2The Calculated Cetane Index is not an optional method for expressing ASTM cetane number. It is a supplementary tool to estimate cetane number when used with due regard for its limitations.
1.3The Calculated Cetane Index formula is particularly applicable to straight-run fuels, catalytically cracked stocks, and blends of the two.
Note 1:This test method is temporarily retained because the proposal to the U.S. EPA to control diesel fuel aromatics concentrations via a 40 Calculated Cetane Index minimum is based on the correlation between Test Method and aromatics concentration. Test Method is the preferred method as estimator of cetane number.
1.4This 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.
1.5This 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.
