Historical (view previous versions of standard)
The normal butane thermophysical property tables are for use in the calculation of the pressure-volume-temperature (PVT), thermodynamic, and transport properties of normal butane for process design and operations. The preparation of the tables and supporting work was done by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the sponsorship of the Gas Research Institute, the American Gas Association, and the Standard Reference Data Program of NIST. These thermophysical property tables are: thermophysical properties of coexisting gaseous and liquid normal butane and thermophysical properties of normal butane.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

1.1 The thermophysical property tables for normal butane are for use in the calculation of the pressure-volume-temperature (PVT), thermodynamic, and transport properties of normal butane for process design and operations. Tables are provided for gaseous and liquid normal butane at temperatures between 136 and 560 K at pressures to 20 MPa. One table provides properties at the conditions of liquid-vapor equilibrium (saturation properties). The other table provides properties at selected T, p points for the equilibrium phase at those conditions. The tables were developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology from a Standard Reference Database product REFPROP, version 8.0.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
