Hydrocarbon Vapor Pressure

Hydrocarbon Vapor Pressure

Hydrocarbon Vapor Pressure

Can somebody assist me in getting a hydrocarbon vapor pressure chart? Mainly I need to get the vapor pressure for gas oil and gasoline. I need this information to compare between the factory NPSH required and the NPSH available physically.

For more clarification, The minimum NPSH available is zero meters while the Facotry NPSH required is 2.2meters (Of course this is tested on water).

The product we are using is gasoline & gas oil, so I need to get the physical NPSH required in order to know if the pump can operate without cavitation when the NPSH available is zero meters.

Diesel is essentially 0 to 0.4 psia.  

Here's the rest.  Gas-Oil won't be higher than the kero curve (lowest curve on the chart)

Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for the confirmation. I wanted to be extra cautious as I don't have experience with pumping gasoline. I think I have seen some previous posts by experts (of this or chemical engineering forum) suggesting not to bank on this extra advantage.

RE: Hydrocarbon Vapor Pressure

The GPSA Databook has a chart that goes from -320F to 600F for HC's from methane to 400 degree F fraction in gasoline and .01 psia to 800 psia. Fig 23-19 to 20.
