There will be two tours and a demo of the software REFPROP. The two tours will show 1) a densimeter many may use in their own labs, but with improved uncertainties, 2) a specialty densimeter for NIST-quality measurements (very low uncertainty) and 3) how we use the data we collect to develop equations of state and models that feed into our REFPROP program.
