We perform fuel quality testing by ASTM D3227 to determine the mercaptan sulfur in gasoline, jet fuel, kerosene, and in other distillate fuels. Mercaptan sulfur has an objectionable odor, an adverse effect on fuel system elastomers, and is corrosive to fuel system components. Mercaptan Sulfur by ASTM D3227 determines mercaptan sulfur in gasolines, kerosines, aviation turbine fuels, and distillate fuels containing from 0.0003 to 0.01 mass % of mercaptan sulfur.

We also perform sulfur analysis by ASTM D129ASTM D2622ASTM D4294ASTM D5623ASTM D5453ASTM D7039IP 61IP 342ISO 3012, and UOP 163. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
