Standard Test Method for No Flow Point and Pour Point of Petroleum Products and Liquid Fuels
|Publication Date:||1 July 2015|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This test method covers the determination of the no flow point and pour point of petroleum products, liquid fuels, biodiesel, and biodiesel blends using an automatic instrument.
The measuring range of the apparatus is from -95 °C to 45 °C, however the precision statements were derived only from samples with no flow point temperatures from -77 °C to +2 °C and samples with pour point in the temperature range of -58 °C to +12 °C.
Pour point results from this test method can be reported at 1 °C or 3 °C intervals.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
