Specific Gravity - A Key Parameter
In this eLearning session we describe the specific gravity measurement in the whole refining process- from upstream to downstream. We introduce the theoretical background to the technique, the advantages of digital measurement over traditional approaches and introduce the broad equipment solutions from Anton Paar.
We place a particular focus on the practical aspect of this parameter in the daily routine to ensure full compliance with ASTM D4052, D5002, D7777, D8188 & ISO 12185. Our density experts in petroleum industry will answer all your questions you may have on this topic.
• Specific gravity measurement with Anton Paar’s oscillating U-tube technology
• Advantages using digital handheld and benchtop density meters
• Application fields within the whole refining process
• Compliance to relevant ISO and ASTM standards
