scope:

1.1 This test method covers a procedure for a rapid and simple field determination of hydrogen sulfide in natural gas pipelines. Available detector tubes provide a total measuring range of 0.5 ppm by volume up to 40 % by volume, although the majority of applications will be on the lower end of this range (that is, under 120 ppm).

1.2 Typically, sulfur dioxide and mercaptans may cause positive interferences. In some cases, nitrogen dioxide can cause a negative interference. Most detector tubes will have a “precleanse†layer designed to remove certain interferences up to some maximum interferent level. Consult manufacturers' instructions for specific interference information.

1.3 Unitsâ€"The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
