ASTM WK43032

    Work Item: ASTM WK43032 - New Practice for API MPMS Chapter 7.1, 2nd edition, Liquid in Glass Thermometers. This is an API standard, to be developed under a task group developed under the guidance of the joint Subcommittee, API COMQ/ASTM D02.02. The goal of the task group is to determine alternatives to Mercury in Glass Thermometers for the determination of temperature of petroleum and petroleum products for custody transfer in API and joint API/ASTM standards.

    1. Scope

    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.
