Automatic Distillation of Petroleum Products

Automatic Distillation of Petroleum Products
Test Method
The sample is evaporated and condensed under controlled conditions, and observations are made of the temperatures at which various percentages are recovered and/or the percentages recovered at specific temperatures.
