This calculates the correction factor to convert volumes between different temperature conditions.
Kelton calculation reference C222
This calculation is used by the following calculations:
Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 11.1 – Volume correction factors Volume 10 – Background, Development and Program Documentation: API Standard 2540 First Edition (August 1980)
The constants to represent the properties of the various product groups are given in C022.
- Rounding Select this option to follow the procedure for rounding and truncating as stated in the standard
- Full Calculate using the full precision
All calculations are performed in SI units unless otherwise stated
The temperature correction factor is calculated by
ΔT = The difference between the temperature and the base temperature of 15 °C
where K0, K1 and K2 are taken from the product group constants
