K16201 Automatic Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Tester


Test Method
For flash point determinations of fuels, lubricating oils, liquids containing suspended solids and liquids that tend to form a surface film during testing.

Features and Benefits

• Conforms to ASTM D93 and related specifications

• Simple automation routine for easy operation


Automatic Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Tester
The automated Pensky-Martens flash point tester accurately determines the lowest flash point temperature of fuels, lubricating oils, and homogenous liquids (ASTM D93 A), or liquids containing suspended solids as well as liquids that tend to form a surface film during testing (ASTM D93 B). Flash point tests are simply conducted by mounting the flash cup filled with sample into the test position and selecting a pre- or user-programmed test method. The automation routines provide accurate test results, even with users inexperienced in flash point test methods. The flash point test result is automatically corrected to standard pressure (101.3 kPa). The unit 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 for continually monitoring of instrument function, displaying an error message if a problem is detected. The performance of the electrical ignitor is continuously checked, and the user is notified upon the need of replacement due to either damage or the end of its useful life. When performing a test, the user is also alerted if the first application of the ignitor results in a flash or if no flash point is detected at the end of the test program. If a flash is not detected 30C above the expected flash point or at 400C, then the test is automatically aborted for safety.
