  • Convertion of metric ton to litres

    i would like to know how many liters of oil in one mt(metric tons)
    types of oil that i would like to convert:
    IFO380
    IFO180
    MDO

    i wanna to get the price for a litre of oil from a website, but they only show the price per mt, hope i can get some help here^.^


    thank^.^

    You need to know the density of the oil, which can vary lot to lot and should be measured for precision. MDO is heavier than #2 diesel, and around 0.9 kg/L, the other two are heavier yet approaching 0.99 kg/L (I can't find good density specs for any of them). A metric ton is just 1000 kg, so divide by the density.

    For 0.9 kg/L, 1 ton = 1000 kg x 1 L/0.9 kg = 1110 L
    For 0.99 kg/L, 1010 L

    The first two are residual fuel oils and need to be heated to flow.

      thank for the your reply.
      i sure the industry have a standard density to calculate, but i just cannot find it online.

        No, they do not. The industry is based on measured density when accurate mass to volume conversion is required. I found a spec from one company for MDO, 0.84 - 0.91 kg/L. If you plug that range in, 1 t can vary from 1099 to 1190 L. These heavy oils are specified primarily by viscosity, and represent a blend of different ranges of petroleum distallate plus residual fuel.

        At best, expect plus or minus 5% around a "typical" value.

            For accuracy, you need the density of the specific lot of oil. However, MGO is similar to #2 diesel, so 0.85 kg/L is probably a good "typical" value, therefore around 850 000 kg, or 850 t.

                You should use density of this lot of diesel but using 0.85 t/m as typical, 588 235 m or 588 235 000 L.
