The user should, however, realize that the test method is not of itself correlative to induction-system deposits.

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.

With respect to aviation turbine fuels, large quantities of gum are indicative atsm contamination of fuel by higher boiling oils or particulate matter and generally reflect poor handling practices in distribution downstream of the asttm. 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.

Why is measuring the gum aatm important? Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. In contrast to the Adtm 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. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous asrm health and corrosive to materials.


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. 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. What is the gum content? For asm warning statements, see 6.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The gum content is the nonvolatile residue that is left after the evaporation of the sample under controlled conditions.

Historical Asmt s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Since many motor gasolines are purposely blended with nonvolatile oils or additives, the heptane extraction step is d38 to remove these from the evaporation residue so that the deleterious material, gum, may be determined.

For motor gasoline an additional treatment is necessary: Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products. 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 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. Gum can also be caused by chemical reactions of some fuel components with each other or with oxygen. 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.


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. In this case, the beaker containing the residue is weighed before and after the washing procedure. This website uses cookies to improve user experience.

The gum content can be used to judge the quality of various products. Large quantities of gum are an indicator for the contamination of fuel caused by higher boiling oils or particles.

The use of air, on zstm other hand, is used for testing motor gasoline. How can I measure the gum content?

Generally, the gum content reflects inappropriate production processes and poor fuel asrm in the refinery or the storage facility. Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: The general procedure for the determination of the gum content in fuels is described in the following standards: This is the reason why stabilizing agents, such as oxidation inhibitors, are added in order to increase the fuel stability.

Density Redefined Anton Paar has once again redefined digital density measurement with the groundbreaking invention of a new measuring principle: How to measure the gum content of fuels. This residue can be a result of, e. The quality of different fuels, e.
