This chapter describes methods, equipment and procedures for determining the temperature of petroleum and petroleum products for custody transfer under both static and dynamic conditions.
Mercury is being phased out of use. A task group was formed under the joint Subcommittee: API COMQ/ASTM D02.02 to find alternatives to Mercury thermometers for use in API and joint API/ASTM standards. The work of this task group will also result in modifications to the joint API/ASTM Density Determination Standards, D 287, D 1298, D 1657 and D 6822. Users of the standard will be organizations that are required to determine the temperature of petroleum and petroleum products.
