Standard Test Method for Cloud Point of Petroleum Products (Constant Cooling Rate Method)
|Publication Date:||10 July 2003|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method describes the determination of the cloud point of petroleum products and biodiesel fuels that are transparent in layers 40 mm in thickness by an automatic instrument using a constant cooling rate.
This test method covers the range of temperatures from −60 to +49°C with temperature resolution of 0.1°C, however, the range of temperatures included in the 1997 interlaboratory cooperative test program only covered the temperature range of −56 to +34°C.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
