THE AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE (API) has joined forces with Flow-Cal to develop, support and distribute the standard and software application for API’s Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards, Chapter 11 – Physical Properties Data, Section – 1 Temperature and Pressure Volume Correction Factors for Generalized Crude Oils, Refined Products, and Lubricating Oils.

This standard establishes a procedure for crude oils, liquid refined products, and lubricating oils through which density measurements taken at any temperature and pressure can be corrected to an equivalent density at the base conditions. The standard also provides a method for making a conversion to alternate base temperatures.

For those who prefer a quick look-up guide over an electronic version, printed temperature correction (CTL) tables of the API MPMS Ch. 11.1 - 2004 algorithms are also available. The VCF manuals are offered in an abridged version, providing the optimal table range, or the full version with the complete table range.

Custom ranges are available upon request. The complete library of VCF manuals is listed below in both the U.S. Customary and SI Series.

These items are not currently sold online. For questions, or to purchase by phone, please call 281-282-0865 or email apistandards@flowcal.com.
