K14601 Automatic Tag Closed Cup Flash Point Tester


 

Test Method
For flash point determinations of liquids with a viscosity of below 5.5 centistokes (cSt) at 104F (40C) or below 9.5cSt at 77F (25C), and a flash point below 200F (93C) except cut-back asphalts, those liquids which tend to form a surface film under test conditions and materials which contain suspended solids.

Features and Benefits

• Conforms to ASTM D56 and related specifications

• Simple automation routine for easy operation


 

Automatic Tag Closed Cup Flash Point Tester
The automated Tag Closed Cup flash point tester ensures the accuracy and precision required according to the ASTM D56 and related test method. The test sample is heated at a prescribed rate of temperature increase throughout the standard temperature test range of 0 to 100C, and the extended temperature model achieves a range of –30 to 100C with the use of an external chiller. The flash point tests are simply conducted by mounting the flash cup filled with sample into the test position and selecting a pre-programmed test method or the search mode to determine an approximate flash point. The automation routines provide accurate test results, even with users inexperienced in flash point test methods. Ignition by gas flame or electrical ignitor are included on both models, along with safety cut-off devices. The test results are automatically corrected to standard pressure (101.3 kPa). The system is equipped with a differential Pt-100 RTD probe designed to duplicate the response time of a mercury-in-glass thermometer and with multiple sensors that continually monitor instrument function, displaying an error message if a problem is detected.
