When the curve exhibits a plateau of constant temperature for longer than 1 min, the temperature of the recorded plateau is accepted as the calibration temperature. Precision and Bias A basic calibration procedure is described in A2. It is expressed in d526 per hour for a head of any given internal diameter or millilitres per hour per square centimetre of cross-sectional area of the throat for comparative purposes.

In each case, this must be done keeping in mind the necessity to avoid starving the distillation due to a slow takeoff ratewhile at the same time avoiding entrainment by reducing too quickly the pressure applied to the system.

Vacuum gages based on hot wires, radiation, or conductivity detectors are not recommended. Examples of a distillation report and record are illustrated in Fig. A list of some materials, which have been found asfm for this purpose, is given in Table A2. The dimensions and tolerances of such a gage are beyond the scope of this test method.

For larger stills, follow instructions given in Annex A5. It is most important that at the time of first use of a new apparatus, its components be checked as detailed in Annex A1 and Annex A2 and that the location of the vapor temperature sensor be verified as detailed in 6. Record the temperature when it becomes stable.


Crude Oil Assay Tests List

For the boiling point of water, use an equilibrium still or ebulliometer, a Tensimeter as shown in Fig. The parts are connected by vacuumtight joints to facilitate servicing.

For the freezing point of water, a Dewar flask filled with crushed ice and water can be substituted. Weigh by difference to the nearest gram, the required volume of wet sample into a distillation flask containing a magnetic stirrer.

Experience has shown that reduced crude oil samples typically run well at 0. Automated stills, which are left unattended for long periods, should be equipped with an automatic fire extinguisher, automatic quench, and alarm.

De Nemours and Co. The K-factor shall be assumed to be 12 and any effect of K-factor ignored unless there is mutual agreement to the contrary. Validating atm specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Warning—Vapor temperature measurement is one of the two major sources of error in distillation data. Harmful or fatal if inhaled or ingested. Wstm, certified sensors may be used, provided the calibration of the sensor and its associated recording instrument can be traced back to a primary temperature standard.

Send us a request APAC: We need your help to maintenance this website. Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. If the reblending is done in the original flask, this flask can be used for the subsequent distillation.

An adjustable jacking mechanism is recommended for raising and lowering the stirrer. This maximum will be significantly lower for heat sensitive samples for example, heavy residues and might be axtm higher for nonheat sensitive samples.


This appears as bubbling at the surface without generation of condensable vapors.

The charge may need to be warmed to facilitate transfer. The external magnetic drive must be capable of rotating the bar in the flask when located directly below and touching the mantle. By feeling for the spillover point, the distance from the top joint of the adaptor can be found. The total must be between A suitable manual device is illustrated in Fig.

Records of vapor temperature, operating pressure, and other variables are made at satm, including at each cutpoint. Please fill this form, we will try to respond as soon as possible. It shall have a response time of less than 60 s as described in Annex A1.

In the case of ball joints, use only enough lubricant to produce a thin continuous film. It shall be kept satm with crushed dry ice at all times while in service.

High Vacuum (HIVAC) Still, ASTM D5236

An excess of lubricant can promote leakage. The rings of O-ring joints should be made of Vitron-A5, or silicone of equivalent hardness, and be lightly lubricated. The use of two reference McLeod gages of different pressure ranges is recommended as a precaution. In this case, replace the metal. Warning—This apparatus operates under high vacuum and high temperature. Insert a dry ice trap between the manifold and the vacuum pump.
