I need to figure out how much 1 gallon of lube oil(turbine oil) weighs, and then if possible what the PSI of the oil could possibly be in a standing position.
Problem description, I have a lube oil tank that is designed to hold roughly 7 thousand gallons. Installed above the maximum oil level there are blow off pannels. which are designed to blow at a rated positive psi. I need to know if the tank was over filled if there is a way to convert the amount of oil into actual psi. Thus giving me an idea if these blow off pannels would burst. Bear in mind this is not a normal operating situation this is simply for discussion.
