Online Viscosity Systems

Multi-curve Referral

Temperature Vs. Kinematic Viscosity: ASTM D341

log.log (v + 0.7) = A-BlogT

v = kinematic viscosity; cst

T = temperature deg Kelvin

using ASTM D341 log.log (v + 0.7) = A-BlogT
• two process variables
• kinematic viscosity (cst)
• temperature (OK)
• two constants A & B
• therefore with two sets of calibration data.... A&B can be found
Calculations

log.log (v + 0.7) = A-BlogT........(i)

let v = 128.58cst at 40 OC

log.log (129.28) = A-Blog(313).............(ii)

let v = 15.00 cst at 100 OC

log.log (15.70) = A-Blog(373)...............(iii)

(ii) - (iii) and solve for B: B=3.24

substitute B in (ii) and solve for A

log.log (15.70) = A-3.24log(373).............(iv)

calculating base viscosity
• now substitute A and B in (i)
• log.log (v + 0.7) = 8.41-3.24logT........(v)
• and now:
• enter the temperature of interest in T, e.g. 50 OC, the base temperature
• find v
• log.log (v + 0.7) = 8.41-3.24log(323)
• v = 80.0cst at 50 OC
the multi-curve method
• for products where quality changes dramatically
• for multiple products
• combines ASTM equation with ratio technique
• for bunker monitoring and blending control
