1.1 This test method covers the determination of the pour point of petroleum products by an automatic instrument that tilts the test jar to detect movement of the surface of the test specimen with an optical device, after being removed from a regulated, stepped-bath cooling jacket.
1.2 This test method is designed to cover the range of temperatures from −57 to +51°C; however, the range of temperatures included in the 1998 interlaboratory test program only covered the temperature range from −51 to −11°C.
1.3 Test results from this test method can be determined at either 1 or 3°C testing intervals.
1.4 This test method is not intended for use with crude oils.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
