IS0 3015:1992(E) Foreword IS0 (the International. Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0 technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, govern- mental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0 collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization. Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an Inter- national Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote. International Standard IS0 3015 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 28, Petroleum products and Lubricants. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (IS0 3015:1974), of which it constitutes a technical revision. 0 IS0 1992 All rights reserved.

Petroleum products - Determination of cloud point WARNING - The use of this International Standard may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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. 1 Scope This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the cloud point of petroleum products which are transparent in layers 40 mm in thickness and have a cloud point below 49 *C. 2 Definition For the purposes of this International Standard, the following definition applies. 2.1 cloud point: The temperature at which a cloud of wax crystals first appears in a liquid when it is cooled under specified conditions. 3 Principle A sample is cooled at a specified rate and examined periodically. The temperature at which a cloud is first observed at the bottom of the test jar is re- corded as the cloud point. 4 Apparatus (see figure 1) 4.1 Test jar, cylindrical, of clear glass, flat- bottomed, 33,2 mm to 34,8 mm in outside diameter and 115 mm to 125 mm in height. The inside diameter of the jar may range from 30 mm to 32,4 mm, within the constraint that the wall thickness be no greater than I,6 mm. The jar shall be marked with a line to indicate a sample height L 54 mm + 3 mm above the inside bottom. - 4.2 Thermometers, partial-immersion type, con- forming to the specifications in table 1. 4.3 Cork, to fit the test jar, bored centrally to take the test thermometer. 4.4 Jacket, watertight, cylindrical, metal, flat- bottomed, about 115 mm in depth, with an inside di- ameter of 44,2 mm to 45,8 mm. It shall be supported in a vertical position in a cooling bath (4.7) so that not more than 25 mm projects out of the cooling medium, and it shall be capable of being cleaned. 4.5 Disc, of cork or felt, 6 mm in thickness, to fit loosely inside the jacket. 4.6 Gasket, ring form, about 5 mm in thickness, to fit snugly on the outside of the test jar and loosely inside the jacket. This gasket may be made of rubber, leather or other suitable material, elastic enough to cling to the test jar and hard enough to hold its shape. The purpose of the ring gasket is to prevent the test jar from touching the jacket. SIST EN 23015:1998

The size and shape of the baths are not specified, but a support to hold the jackets firmly in a vertical position is essential. The bath temperature shall be monitored by means of a high or low cloud and pour thermometer immersed to the correct immersion depth. For the determination of cloud points below IO OC, two or more baths are needed. The required bath temperatures m;iy be maintained by refrigeration
