ASTM D1298 - Density, Relative Density (Specific Gravity), or API Gravity of Crude Petroleum and Liquid Petroleum Products by Hydrometer
We perform testing by ASTM D1298 to determine the density, specific gravity, or API gravity of gasoline, diesel, crude oil, and other petroleum products. Density is an important quality indicator for automotive, aviation and marine fuels, where it affects storage, handling and combustion. ASTM D1298 applies to crude petroleum, petroleum products, or mixtures of petroleum and nonpetroleum products normally handled as liquids, and having a Reid vapor pressure of 101.325 kPa (14.696 psi) or less.
We also perform density and gravity testing by ASTM D1475, ASTM D287, ASTM D4052, 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.
