Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 July 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Extraction and processing of petroleum and natural gas): 75.020
ICS Code (Crude petroleum): 75.040
significance And Use:

Vapor pressure of crude oil at various V/Ls is an important physical property for shipping and storage.

Note 2-A vapor-liquid ratio of 0.02:1 (X = 0.02) mimics closely the situation of an... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the use of automated vapor pressure instruments to determine the vapor pressure exerted in vacuum of crude oils. This test method is suitable for testing samples that exert a vapor pressure between 25 and 180 kPa at 37.8°C at vapor-liquid ratios from 4:1 to 0.02:1 (X = 4 to 0.02).

Note 1-This test method is suitable for the determination of the vapor pressure of crude oils at temperatures from 0 to 100°C and pressures up to 500 kPa, but the precision and bias statements (see Section 14) may not be applicable.

1.2 This test method allows the determination of vapor pressure for crude oil samples having pour points above 0°C.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

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. For specific warning statements, see 7.2.1-7.3.2.
