This standard is for use in calculating the weight and volume of benzene, toluene, mixed xylenes, styrene, orthoxylene, meta-xylene, para-xylene, cumene, ethylbenzene, 300 to 350°F and 350 to 400°F aromatic hydrocarbons, and cyclohexane. A method is given for calculating the volume at 60°F from an observed volume at t°F. Table 1 lists the density in pounds per gallon at 60°F for high purity chemicals.
Calculated results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
A complete SI unit companion standard has been developed in Test Method D 1555M.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
