Next Generation Vapor Pressure Testing
May 18 2021
The MINIVAP VP VISION from Grabner Instruments is a highly versatile and portable vapor pressure tester which measures gasoline, jet fuel, crude oil, LPG and solvents, all with one unit.
The MINIVAP VP Vision is the first vapor pressure tester to demonstrate excellence in engineering and quality and offers an extended pressure range of 0 to 2000 kPa without compromising precision. Long-term testing has demonstrated an unmatched repeatability of less than 0.2 kPa. In addition, the MINIVAP VP Vision features Grabner´s Sampling Pro™ valve design, which during ruggedness tests proved to be the best-in-class, piston-based design for minimizing cross contamination between various sample types.
Grabner’s Cockpit™ PC software offers lab managers the utmost in flexibility. The software allows users to consolidate measurement results and statistics from multiple locations at one central lab and to store measurement data at any chosen location via direct Ethernet and LIMS-connection. The software can be accessed through a secure VPN tunnel, allowing true mobile access to instruments from any place at any time.

Crude Oil Package – The Official Standard Method for Vapor Pressure of Crude Oil
The Crude Oil Package is a comprehensive solution for the transport and measurement of the vapor pressure of crude oil according to ASTM D6377. The unique Floating Piston Cylinder allows safe sample transfer of “live crude oils” according to ASTM D3700 and eliminates the risk of evaporation of light hydrocarbon ends during transport.
- Floating Piston Cylinder (FPC 250)
Collecting crude oils in constant pressure, floating-piston cylinders can avoid changes in gas/liquid composition. Grabners Floating Piston Cylinder is a stainless-steel cylinder, which was carefully developed in cooperation with offshore personnel. The small and handy cylinder holds 250 mL of sample and allows the collection, mixing, transfer and handling of crude oils. It fully complies with ASTM D3700, D6377 and GOST R 52340 methods.
- Easy to Use
Attach the FPC to the sample source and flush it either manually or purge it with a continuous bypass stream of the sample. Then collect the sample and seal it inside the cylinder.
- Mechanical Stirrer
The FPC includes a built-in mechanical stirrer, to maintain a representative and uniform sample.
- Manual Filling for ASTM D3700
The handle of the mechanical stirrer extends from the air-inlet side and contains a compact pressure gauge to monitor the pressure of the crude oil inside the cylinder. The mechanical stirrer also enables manual positioning, making a back-pressure source in field unnecessary. When the piston is in forward position, the filling of the FPC 250 automatically creates a back pressure of approximately 150 psi of air, which is suitable and sufficient for numerous sampling conditions.
