NEW CORRELATION PREDICTS DENSITY OF PETROLEUM FRACTIONS

Jose Vicente Gomez Maraven S.A. Punto Fijo, Venezuela An empirical equation estimates the liquid density of petroleum fractions and hydrocarbon mixtures at specific temperatures. The specific gravity and Watson K factor of the fraction are the only properties required, keeping characterization work to a minimum. The equation is applicable to fractions having boiling points ranging from 40 to 650 C. It has been found to be in good agreement with the American Petroleum Institute (API)
