Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 December 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Measurement of volume, mass, density, viscosity): 17.060
significance And Use:

Density is a fundamental physical property that can be used in conjunction with other properties to characterize both the light and heavy fractions of petroleum and to assess the quality of crude... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers two procedures for the measurement of the density of materials which are fluid at the desired test temperature. Its application is restricted to liquids of vapor pressures below 600 mm Hg (80 kPa) and viscosities below 40 000 cSt (mm2/s) at the test temperature. The method is designed for use at any temperature between 20 and 100°C. It can be used at higher temperatures; however, in this case the precision section does not apply.

Note 1-For the determination of density of materials which are fluid at normal temperatures, see Test Method D 1217.

1.2 This test method provides a calculation procedure for converting density to specific gravity.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
