ASTM Hydrometers and Thermohydrometers
For density, relative density (specific gravity) or API gravity
determination of crude petroleum, liquid petroleum products and mixtures
of petroleum and non-petroleum products. For density of LPG and light
hydrocarbons refer to K26150.
Calibrated hydrometers and thermohydrometers are available
from Koehler with an ISO/IEC 17025 and ANSI/NCSL Z-540-1 Report of
When inquiring about calibrated hydrometers and
thermohydrometers, please refer to the catalog number for the
corresponding hydrometer or thermohydrometer and replace the middle
three zeros in the catalog number with 004. Example: 251-000-01H API
Gravity Hydrometer would be 251-004-01H Certified API Gravity
