ASTM DEVELOPS NEW PRACTICE FOR COLLECTING FUEL & FUEL SYSTEM SAMPLES FOR MICROBIOLOGICAL TESTING
For decades, ASTM D 4057 (Practice for Manual Sampling of Petroleum and Petroleum Products) for guidance on how to collect samples. Unfortunately, D 4057 does not provide any infromation specific to collecting samples one which microbiological tests will be performed. In August 2008, ASTM published a new Standard – D 7464 Practice for Manual Sampling of Liquid Fuels, Associated Materials and Fuel System Components for Microbiological Testing.
