i work in heavy oil and gas industry. i am working on a project to install dual viscometer to measure the viscosity of heavy oil blend with diluent in order to calculate the oil-diluent blending rate. once we have the measured viscosity at 2 different temperautres we can extraploate the viscoisty at the reference point and hence determine the blending rate of the diluent. I am strugguling with the temperature i need to measure the visocity on. theoretically speaking it doesnt matter what temperature i use but i would like to know if there are any limitations for heavy oil visocity measurement in terms of temperature, pressure and flow rate. i will take the slip stream of the blend lets say about 5-10 USgpm and measure the visocity on temperature of 40 C and other at 10 C. the reference temperature at the dilvery point varries between 18.5 C and 7.5 C throughout the year. anyone has experience working in such a project? please comment. i need recommendations for temperature and pressure of oil viscosity measurement. i am new to this stuff. any book or reading material anyone could suggest? Thanks and Regards
