Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 19.3 - Evaporative Loss Measurement Part E - Weight Loss Test Method for the Measurement of Deck-Fitting Loss Factors for Internal Floating-Roof Tanks
|Publication Date:||1 May 1997|
This test method may be used to establish evaporative loss factors for deck fittings of internal floating-roof tanks. The test method involves measuring the weight loss of a test assembly over time. This standard specifies the test apparatus, the instruments, the test procedures, and the calculation procedures to be used. It also specifies the variables to be measured and stipulates quality provisions. The format for reporting the values of both the test results and their associated uncertainty are also specified.
This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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.
