Crude oil | Characterize crude oils by determining their viscosity and API degrees

To ensure smooth extraction and transport, but also to know how to refine a certain crude oil, its viscosity and density, as well as the API Degree need to be determined. SVM 3001 can determine all these parameters simultaneously.


Countless products we come across in everyday life are made from crude oil. Just think of gasoline, diesel fuel, lube oils, kerosene or plastics as well as many textile fibers, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products – all of them contain components based on crude oil. Crude oil is the substance that is extracted from a well or from oil sands and needs to be refined before it can be used.
