BARTEC P-700 Reid Vapor Pressure Analyzer

To remain competitive, today’s refiners must employ all optimization and product control techniques available. The use of online physical property analyzers is one of the key features to reach those objectives because they measure important quality properties in the process directly.

Reid Vapor Pressure is a common measure of the volatility of gasoline. It is defined as the absolute vapour pressure exerted by a liquid at 100°F (37.8°C) as determined by the test method ASTM D323. The test method applies to volatile crude oil and volatile nonviscous petroleum liquids, except liquefied petroleum gases.


With the introduction of the Clean Air Act and its amendments in 1990 by the Environmental Protection Agency under Title II Emission Standards for Moving Sources, Part A – Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards, Section 211 Regulation of Fuels – (h) Reid Vapor Pressure Requirements, it has become unlawful to sell, offer for sale, dispense, supply, offer for supply, transport, or introduce into commerce gasoline with a Reid Vapor Pressure in excess of 9.0 pounds per square inch (psi) during the high ozone season (as defined by the Administrator).
