Petroleum products - Determination of pour point
|Publication Date:||1 January 1995|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This Intemational Standard specifies a method for the determination of the pour point of petroleum products. A separate procedure suitable for the determination of the lower pour point of fuel oils, heavy lubricant base stock, and products containing residual fuel components is also described.
NOTE 1 A method for the pour point of crude oils is under development. The pour point of crude oils may be determined by the general procedure described in this International Standard, but some crude oils may need a modified pretreatment to avoid the toss of volatile material. The precision in this International Standard was derived on a sample matrix that did not include crude oils (see note 5).
