API MPMS 8.2
Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 8 - Sampling Section 2 - Standard Practice for Automatic Sampling of Liquid Petroleum and Petroleum Products
|Publication Date:||1 October 1995|
This standard provides information for the design, installation, testing, and operation of automated equipment for extraction of representative samples of petroleum and petroleum products from a flowing stream and storing them in a sample receiver. If sampling is for the precise determination of volatility, use MPMS Chapter 8.4 in conjunction with this standard. For sample mixing and handling of samples, refer to MPMS Chapter 8.3.
Petroleum and petroleum products covered in this standard are considered to be single phase and exhibit Newtonian characteristics at the point of sampling.
