ASTM D – ASTM D bnm. D — 12b Designation: A number in paren parenthese thesess indicates the year of last reappr reapproval. The valu values es giv given en in par parent enthes heses es are pro provid vided ed for information only. Readings are measured on a hydrometer at either the reference temperature or at another convenient temperature, and readings are corrected for the meniscus effect, the thermal glass expansion effect, alternate calibration temperature effects and to the reference temperature by means of the Petroleum Measurement Tables; values obtained at other than the reference temperature being hydrometer readings and not density measurements.

Ensure that the remainder remainder of the hydromet hydrometer er stem stem, whi which ch is abo above ve the liquid level, is not wetted as liquid on the stem affects the reading obtained. This reading readin g requi requires res a meniscu meniscuss corre correction. This correction can be determined by one of two methods: Since the same coefficients were used in compiling each set of tables, corrections made over the same temperature temper ature interv interval al minim minimize ize errors arising from possible dif differenc ferences es between betw een the coe coefffici icient ent of the mat materi erial al und under er tes testt and the sta standa ndard rd coefficients.


This effect becomes more important as temperatures diverge from the reference temperature. The precision of WAT for crude petroleum using this technique has not been determined.
