What Is a densitometer in oil and gas?

In the oil and gas industry, a densitometer is normally used to measure the density of liquid hydrocarbon finished products like propane and gasoline and liquid mixtures like Y-grade natural gas liquids (NGL), but can also be used to measure the density of crude oil.

What is a fuel densitometer?

The densitometer uses a torsional mode natural frequency to determine density in real time, providing an accurate and reliable indication of fuel density over the temperature ranges typically encountered in aircraft fuel tank applications. It is designed to operate in all aircraft fuels encountered worldwide.

How does a densitometer work?

The densitometer is basically a light source aimed at a photoelectric cell. It determines the density of a sample placed between the light source and the photoelectric cell from differences in the readings. Modern densitometers have the same components, but also have electronic integrated circuitry for better reading.

What measurement is oil?

(1) Oil production is measured and reported in barrels, or “bbl.” Production rates are typically reported in terms of barrels per day, which may be abbreviated in several different ways, including bpd, b/d and bbl/d.

What density of petrol is good?

710-770 kg/cubic mtr
There is as such no standard figures for it. But there is a range that is acceptable acording to BIS standards. For petrol its 710-770 kg/cubic mtr.

Which has higher density petrol or diesel?

The calorific value of diesel fuel is roughly 45.5 MJ/kg (megajoules per kilogram), slightly lower than petrol which is 45.8 MJ/kg. However, diesel fuel is denser than petrol and contains about 15% more energy by volume (roughly 36.9 MJ/litre compared to 33.7 MJ/litre).

What is the difference between a reflection densitometer and a transmission densitometer?

Reflection densitometers measure light reflected from paper and other surfaces; transmission densitometers measure light transmitted through film and other materials. You just studied 28 terms!

What are the types of densitometer?

There are three basic types of densitometers: scanning densitometers, reflection densitometers, and transmission densitometers.
