Standard Test Method for Density and Relative Density (Specific Gravity) of Liquids by Lipkin Bicapillary Pycnometer
|Publication Date:||31 October 1988|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the density of any hydrocarbon material that can be handled in a normal fashion as a liquid at the specified test temperatures of 20 to 25°C. Its application is restricted to liquids having vapor pressures less than 80 kPa (600 mm Hg) and having viscosities less than 15 mm2/s (cst) at 20°C.
1.2 Two procedures are covered as follows:
1.2.1 Procedure A, for pure compounds and mixtures which are not highly volatile.
1.2.2 Procedure B, for highly volatile mixtures.
1.3 This test method provides a calculation procedure for converting density to relative density.
1.4 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Notes 1, 2, 6 and Annex A1,
