When measuring the vapour pressure, the measurement cell was moved by a shaker as required by ASTM D The Setavap 2 is used for the measurement of gasoline, solvents, light asm oils, and similar products, using the “Mini” method. For comparison a sample was taken every hour during daytime and measured with eralytics laboratory vapour pressure tester ERAVAP figure 4.

The crude oil measurements were performed with a Zarzaitine crude oil density: This reduces the need for manual control measurements and allows higher automation for processes where vapour pressure is a key parameter.

ASTM D – 01 Standard Test Method for Vapor Pressure of Petroleum Products (Mini Method)

The potential exists that selling mercury or mercury-containing products, or both, is prohibited by local or national law. A triple expansion was used as mentioned in ASTM D to measure the vapour pressure of the sample, the partial pressure caused by ast, air and the total pressure.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Spectro Scientific acquired by Ametek Dec 14 Read However, due to the sample preparation required by this standard, process analysers were never able to comply with it, but can only offer correlating measuring methods.


The air saturation process requires complex preperations, for example a consequent shaking of the sample or a refrigerator cooling.

Setavap 2 Vapour Pressure Tester

Link to Active This link will always route to astj current Active version of the standard. A pressure transducer is measuring the resulting rise in pressure. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. At the end of a measurement, the total vapor pressure is converted to a dry vapor pressure equivalent DVPE.

ASTM D – 13 Standard Test Method for Vapor Pressure of Petroleum Products (Mini Method)

For the first time the methods required by authorities, as well as the methods available for process and laboratory instruments are the same, allowing c5191 easy comparison between laboratory and online measurements. In between the multiple saturation steps it is required to let the sample cool again for approximately 2 minutes.

How To Specify a Spectrometer. D02— filed with ASTM for supporting data. The gasoline measurements were performed using a typical Austrian gasoline blend.

Fully evacuated chamber technology guarantees that the sample is tested under a full vacuum, as required by the “Mini” test methods. Dec 27 Read This allows to measure at realistic conditions e. The digital display guides the operator through the test sequence, displays the instrument status and the test results. This covers a large area of gasolines which have a common vapour pressure range of 48 kPa to kPa [2].

When dealing with the vapour pressure of crude oils recent incidents showed that the currently used measurement methods are not sufficiently reflecting the conditions that occur during transportation or storage. 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.

Users must determine legality of sales in their location. Free to read This article has been unlocked and is ready to read. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. For specific safety warning statements, see 7.


Typical compositions for crude oils of this region can be found in the literature [3] [4]. All valve operations are automated including sample draining also chamber venting and purging. Note 2 — Samples can also be tested at other vapor-to-liquid ratios, temperatures, and pressures, but the precision and bias statements need not apply. No account is made for dissolved water in the sample.

Safe and reliable pressure calibration and pressure These may be printed via the integral RS port and optional Data Printer Cooling or air saturation is not necessary, thus making it the ideal solution for process measurements.

The vapour to liquid ratio is 4: The calculated DVPE very closely approximates the dry vapor pressure that would be obtained on the same material when tested by Test Method D Test Method D, as well as IPhave been shown to be suitable for vapor pressure measurements of crude oils.

Dec 18 Read Dec 22 Read Dec 14 Read Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard Translated Version s: Inside the chamber, the test specimen is allowed to reach thermal equilibrium at the test temperature of However, this standard is based on a triple expansion step, which allows calculating the absolute vapor pressure of the liquid, as well as the partial pressure of the dissolved air.
