6 shows that the value of pour point of biodiesel is slightly more than ASTM Value but close to the value of diesel.
The pour point of the fuel is considered an extreme cold flow measurement and indicates the point when the diesel fuel loses its fluid-like qualities.
Pour point is the lowest temperature at which fluid can flow freely under standard conditions.
Thus, the viscosity and pour point are the important parameters to indicate the biolubricant performance following ASTM.
If the pour point of the mixture is higher than the freeze stability temperatures being tested (-5[degrees]C, -15[degrees]C and/ or -25[degrees]C), the oil phase can solidify and crush water droplets causing an irreversible instability or critical separation.
The pour point was defined as the coldest temperature at which the sample (polymer solution in base oil) still flowed.
