Abstract A new, alternative method determines petroleum fluid pour points with [+-] 1 C. precision and better accuracy than the standard ASTM D-97 procedure. The new method measures the pour point of transparent fluids by determining wax appearance temperature (WAT). Also, pour points of waxy crude oils can be determined by measuring a flow characteristic called restart pressure.
