(5) grains of total sulfur per one hundred (100) standard

cubic feet, which includes hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl

sulfide, carbon disulfide, mercaptans, and mono-, di- and

poly-sulfides. The gas shall also meet the following

individual specifications for hydrogen sulfide, mercaptan

sulfur or organic sulfur:

 

(i) Hydrogen Sulfide - The gas shall not contain

more than one-quarter (0.25) grain of hydrogen

poly-sulfides, but it does not include hydrogen
