K48100 Volatility and Residues in Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gases

Test Method
The volatility of liquefied petroleum (LP) gases is determined by allowing a precooled sample to weather under specified conditions and observing the temperature when 95% has evaporated. Residues in LP gases are determined by weathering of a precooled sample and determination of the volume remaining at 100°F (37.8°C).
