I STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
To measure the liquid density and viscosity of organic coolants over
the temperature range 300 to 850*F.
A knowledge of the density and viscosity of organic coolants as a
function of temperature and extent of decomposition is important to
reactor operation. Techniques were developed to measure these properties
over the temperature range 300 to 850*F.
Density is determined as a function of temperature bye measuring'
the volume occupied by a known weight of sample in a modified Lipkin
pycnometer. The pycnometer is pressurized with an'inert gas to prevent
boiling and maintained at thermal equilibrium in a hot air furnace.
Estimated accuracy of measurements is 0.3 per cent.
Viscosity is determined as a function of temperature Iby measuring
efflux times in a (Cannon-Manning) modification of the Ostwald semi-
micro viscosimeter. The Ostwald pipet is.pressuried with an inert gas
to prevent boiling. Estimated relative accuracy of'rreasurements is
3 per cent.
