AASHTO T 72
Standard Method of Test for Saybolt Viscosity
|Publication Date:||1 January 2010|
This test method covers the empirical procedures for determining the Saybolt Universal or Saybolt Furol viscosities of petroleum products at specified temperatures between 21 and 99°C (70 and 210°F). A special procedure for waxy products is indicated.
Note 1-T 201 and ASTM D445 are preferred for the determination of kinematic viscosity. These methods require smaller samples and less time, and provide greater accuracy. Kinematic viscosities may be converted to Saybolt viscosities by use of the tables in ASTM D2161. It is recommended that viscosity indexes be calculated from kinematic rather than Saybolt viscosities.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
