AppNote 1438: details performance for measurement of lead (Pb) in gasoline per ASTM D5059.

application
Background
ASTM D5059-14 is a standard test method for lead in gasoline by X-ray spectroscopy.

Rigaku NEX QC is demonstrated for the determination of the total lead content of gasoline within the following concentration ranges:

  • 0.010 to 5.0 g Pb/US gal
  • 0.012 to 6.0 g Pb/UK gal
  • 0.0026 to 1.32 g Pb/L

ASTM methods A and B cover the range of 0.10 to 5.0 g Pb/US gal. Test method C covers the range of 0.010 to 0.50 g Pb/US gal.
