New ASTM International Guide Supports Digital Contact Thermometers in Petroleum Industry

ASTM International’s committee on petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants (D02) has approved a guide (D8164) that provides criteria for selecting digital contact thermometers (DCTs) that will accurately measure temperature when performing test methods. 

The guide will help both manufacturers, standards developers, and users of DCTs in the petroleum industry. The criteria are based on the design and characteristics of liquid-in-glass (LiG) thermometers that have also successfully been used in the committee’s test methods.
