This specific method covers following laboratory determinations by hydrometer method: density, relative density (Specific gravity), American Petroleum Institute gravity of: crude petroleum, liquid petroleum products, products must have a Reid vapor pressure of 26 lb or less. A Tamson TLC15-5 refrigerator circulates a (cold) flow through the double walls of the cylinders. The TLC15-5 maintains the bath temperature within ±0.25°C of the test temperature required by the method. The PTFE valves ensure fast drainage and cleaning of the tube. The easy detachable leakage tray prevents that portions of the sample are spilled on the workbench. The rack offers full view on the hydrometer. Our special support eliminates the problem of mounting brackets or portions of a thermostatic bath blocking the view. The measuring set-up contains three glass cylinders with lids, a support, and a TLC15-5 circulator. Our system offers an interesting price advantage compared to other solutions based on a combination of a thermostatic bath and an external chiller.
This set-up can also be used for ASTM D287, standard test method for API gravity of crude petroleum and petroleum products having a Reid vapour pressure of 26 psi (180 kPa) or less. For this method the gravities are determined at 60°F. The set-up can also be used for the thermo-hydrometer conforming to ASTM D6822, or for thermo-hydrometer conform ASTM D1429, Test method D. The system keeps the sample within 0.25°C of the test temperature. After the circulator has stabilized, the set point may be more accurately adjusted in the range of –5.00°C to +5.00°C by programming the offset, if necessary.
