Oilcalcs – the iPhone app for oil and petroleum

[prMac.com] Paranaque, Philippines – Mooring Marine Consultancy is proud to introduce Oilcalcs for iPhone – The oil calculator for professionals in the oil industry.

This app takes as input density (or API), temperature (either in degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit) and volume (either in M3 or Barrels). The values in the three fields can be converted ‘inline’ using the button next to each text field so that the user does not have to go to the separate converter screen to first convert his inputs to the desired unit.

By pressing the ‘OilType’ button repeatedly the user can choose between crude oil, products and luboils (in the Metric system) or between crude oil and products (in the US system).

There is a separate converter screen available that lets the user freely convert API to density and vice versa, as well as Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa.

API / density converion (both in the conversion screen and in the calculator screen ‘inline’) are done using the actual ASTM table 3 and not with formulas so that the conversion matches the ASTM table conversion accurately.

The app has a settings page that lets the user choose between US and Metric system to automatically choose the applicable tables (either table 6A / 6B or table 54A / 54B from the ASTM – American Society for Testing and Materials tables).

In the same settings page also calculation precision can be set individually for the calculated volumes and weights, as well as for the volume correction factor.

The settings are persistent i.e. they are stored inside the phone.

In the first screen (the calculator) an info button on the left side provides a link to the company website and contact info for the developer.

MMC is dedicated to providing quality service and listens to its customers! Any request for improvement / bug fixing is followed up at a high priority and updates are published as soon as they are requested.
