NO. 1-D S5000 | Diesel Fuel Oil Testing According to ASTM D975-18a

ASTM D975-18a, Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils, defines and provides specifications for No. 1-D S5000 fuel oil.

No. 1-D S500 is a light middle distillate fuel used in diesel engine applications that require higher volatility than No. 2-D S5000 with a maximum of 5000 ppm sulfur allowed.

Paragon is capable of performing a majority of the analysis related to the testing of No. 1-D S5000 fuel oil according to ASTM D975-18a Table 1 requirements.

Procedures included on our A2LA Scope of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 are designated as such.

Footnotes:
[A] ASTM D2622 is listed in ASTM D975-18a as the referee method for sulfur analysis on S5000 grades. ASTM D5453 can be used as an alternative test procedure. Section 5.1.7 of ASTM D975-18a states that ASTM D5453 is appropriate for all grades of diesel fuel oil. Paragon currently offers analysis by ASTM D5453.
