Handbook of Petroleum Product Analysis
A companion to James G. Speight’s Handbook of Petroleum Analysis, this book describes the application of methods for determining the instability and incompatibility of petroleum products. More importantly, the Handbook provides details of the meaning of various test results and how they might be applied to predict product behavior. Written in a readable, conversational style that makes the book easy to use, Dr. Speight’s text does not compete with the Annual Book of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) Standards; instead, the Handbook complements it by explaining the raison d’être of various testing methods, making a case for standardizing protocols across international boundaries. Chapters include:
-Distillate Fuel Oil
