Standard Practice for Calculation of Certain Physical Properties of Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gases from Compositional Analysis
|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Gaseous fuels):||75.160.30|
This practice covers, by compositional analysis, the approximate determination of the following physical characteristics of commercial propane, special-duty propane, commercial propane/butane mixtures, and commercial butane (covered by Specification D1835): vapor pressure, relative density, and motor octane number (MON).
This practice is not applicable to any product exceeding specifications for nonvolatile residues. (See Test Method D2158.)
For calculating motor octane number, this practice is applicable only to mixtures containing 20 % or less of propene.
For calculated motor octane number, this practice is based on mixtures containing only components shown in Table 1.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
Non-SI units in parentheses are given for information only.
Motor octane number and relative density are given in MON numbers and dimensionless units, respectively.
