ASTM D4052 - Density, Relative Density, and API Gravity of Liquids by Digital Density Meter
We perform fuel quality testing by ASTM D4052 to determine the density, relative density, and API Gravity of diesel, biodiesel, and viscous oils. Density is a fundamental physical property that can be used to determine the quality of petroleum products. When the density of a petroleum product sample is more or less than expected it is frequently because the sample has been contaminated with a different material with heavier or lighter density.
We also perform density and gravity testing by ASTM D1298, ASTM D1475, ASTM D287, ASTM D891, DIN 51757, IP 160, and ISO 3675. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
