Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

Hello

Im gonna make some heattransfer-calculations of a cistern, used for storage of pineoil. For that I need the kinematic viscocity, heatcapacity and density of the oil at different temperatures. Any one who knows where I can find that data?

RE: Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

Pine oil? No idea. You might get lucky on Google. But I doubt it.

Good luck,
Latexman

To a ChE, the glass is always full - 1/2 air and 1/2 water.

RE: Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

You could ask your current or potential pine oil supplier for some of this data and hope they have it and are generous.

RE: Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

Try olive oil or some low viscocity motor oil or synthetic oil. Their properties can not be that much different.

RE: Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

Contact the suppliers of the product in question. Processors of pine oil must have a need for the similar properties.

RE: Pineoil - thermophysical properties.

I would put it much closer to d-limonene or other plant based solvents than olive oil or the like. I don't believe olive oil or motor oils would have similar enough properties to accurately approximate the behavior.

Pine seed oil ≠ pineoil
