"There are a few data scattered through the literature on the vapor pressures of pure hydrocarbons, but the author has never seen a systematic study of the relationship between temperature and vapor pressures of complicated mixtures such as the various light oils encountered in refinery practice. Such data would be useful in designing equipment for distillation, steam stilling, vacuum distillation and in calculating heat balance, etc. An attempt has been made to link the vapor pressure of a light oil, at various temperatures, to the average boiling point of the oil"--Introduction, page 1.
