Distillation of Reference Fluids (Hexadecane)
Running a distillation with reference fluids is necessary to check the calibration status of the temperature measurement system in an automatic distillation unit.
According to ASTM D86 the verification of the temperature measuring device at elevated temperatures shall be conducted by distilling n-hexadecane (cetane) in accordance with Group 4 of the test method ASTM D86 and comparing the 50 % barometric pressure corrected, recovered temperature with the nominal values that are specified in this standard method.
