Oil Blending

By GSS Ops Team 21 January, Monday
The program Oil Blending covers calculations in US customary and Metric units.

You can select from the drop-down list the way of calculations: in US customary units or in metric units: Blog In calculations in Metric units you can select from the drop-down list which table to use for calculation of VCF (CTPL) by selecting either Table 54A for"Crude", or Table 54B for "Product", or Table 54D for "Lube": Blog In calculations in US customary units you can select from the drop-down list which table to use for calculation of VCF (CTPL) by selecting either Table 6A for"Crude", or Table 6B for "Product", or Table 6D for "Lube": Blog
In addition to the quality parameters of the blend you can calculate the price of the blend, if you fill in the price of each componenet either in US dollars per US barrel or per Metric ton in air as shown on the above pictures.

In both options of calculations ("Metric units" or "US customary units"), you can calculate the following quality parameters of the oil blend. Some parameters may have several different methods of calculations and you can select the method to be used from the drop-down list: Blog Blog Blog You can select an option of taking into account olefin and aromatics content while calculating Octane numbers (RON or MON): Blog You can also calculate the the density of the blend of the heavier component with a lighter diluent. The big difference in densities of the heavier component and of the diluent usually result in shrinkage which is taken into account in calculations. Such calculations allow up to 6 iterations of calculations: Blog For your convenience in Oil Blending you can use a built-in interpolation calculator of volumes allowing to take into account simultaneously product level (ullage or innage) and the trim or list correction: Blog As you can see, this program has a lot of useful features designed to automate and facilitates the calculation of quality parameters of the blend and its price.

We only showed some of useful capabilities available in our oil blending program.

There is also a converter of temperatures and viscosities, like the calculation of the viscosity at the different temperature knowing viscosities at 2 different temperatures or knowing only one viscosity at a certain temperature by means of a beta-factor either for a light or a dark product.
