Measurement and Testing
Anton Paar: Benefit from extensive experience in petroleum testing technology
Oct 18 2017 Comments 0
Anton Paar, the world market leader in the fields of density measurement, rheometry, and viscometry, develops and produces highly accurate laboratory instruments and process measuring systems. What began with flash point testers now extends to an extensive instrument portfolio for various applications. This portfolio includes portable meters for on-site quality control of incoming materials as well as unique viscometers for operation under difficult process conditions. Anton Paar’s solutions are also used for in-depth analysis at all points of petroleum production – from exploration, refining and processing, all the way to transport and distribution.
Attend Anton Paar's seminars at PEFTEC 2017:
Measuring the Cold Filter Plugging Point with Callisto 100
When: Wednesday, November 29, 11.00 – 11.30, room 8
To determine the low-temperature operability of diesel fuel, biodiesel, blends, and gas oils the Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) method is used. Testing and results with Callisto 100 are in full compliance with EN 116, ASTM D6371, EN 16329, JIS K 2288, and IP 309. The session will provide information on automatically measuring CFPP values (CFPP 1 and 2) of diesel fuels in full compliance with the standard methods.
SVM™ Stabinger Viscometer™ Technology for Refinery Products – Benefits and Standardization Status
When: Wednesday, November 29, 13.30 – 14.00, room 6
Anton Paar’s highly precise SVM™ 3001 is sometimes referred to as “the missing link” between dynamic viscosity and kinematic viscosity. One combined measuring cell covers the entire measuring range for viscosity, density, and temperature and is filled in one go. The innovative double-cell design of SVM™ 4001 allows for simultaneous measurements at 40 °C and 100 °C from a single syringe. As each of the measuring cells also contains an integrated density oscillator, density measurements according to ASTM D4052 and ISO 12185 at each temperature are simultaneously performed.
Recently, the EN 16896 standard was introduced: Petroleum products and related products – Determination of kinematic viscosity – Method by Stabinger Viscometer.
Density Measurement with an Oscillating U-tube Density Meter – Versatile Applications and Different Capabilities in the Petroleum Industry
When: Thursday, November 30, 15.30 – 16.00, room 3
From handheld to lab, from on-site to offshore, from upstream to downstream – all these applications are covered by density meters with an oscillating U-tube are used. In all these fields, the petroleum products have to comply with standards. Besides the advantages of this measuring principle, the importance of measuring density at different stages of the refining process in compliance with these standards is demonstrated on the basis of practical examples.
