Setaflash Series 7 Closed Cup flashpoint Tester

Part Number 70000-0

Setaflash Series 7 Closed Cup flashpoint Tester is a fully automated closed cup flash point tester that can complete a flash/no-flash test in less than two minutes, or determine the flash point of a sample.

The instrument allows testing within a wide temperature range of 0 to 300C, at either a specific temperature or in a controlled rising temperature ramp. All functions are accessed via a membrane keypad and digital display. The operator can select pre-programmed or custom test parameters, or override the program to perform non-standard tests. Variable parameters include Rapid Equilibrium or Ramp Modes; time, temperature and ramp values. Shutter operation, flame dipping, flash detection and barometric correction are all automatic. An audible prompt is sounded when an action is required from the operator or the test is completed. An integral printer provides a printout of flash point result, and an RS232 interface is provided for connection to a remote pc. The test flame operates from either mains gas or an optional Portable Gas Tank (13667-0). The test cup may be connected to a cooling water supply to minimise the time between tests.

Small scale flash point testers are universally specified in many international regulations to define and classify 'flammable' and 'combustible' substances. They provide the most precise and fastest means of carrying out flash point tests on a definitive flash - no flash basis, both in the laboratory and the field. A 2ml sample and 1 minute test time for low temperature tests make these instruments ideally suited for many applications. Petrochemicals, Biodiesel (FAME), adhesives, foods, flavours cosmetics, paints/varnishes, waste, pharmaceuticals, polishes, and aerosols are just some of the products routinely tested. Fully meeting the requirements of Rapid Equilibrium methods ISO 3679/3680, Setaflash Testers are the only small scale instruments with flash detection. Setaflash is specified by ASTM for testing Aviation Turbine Fuels (D1655), Diesel (D975), Fuel Oil (D396), Gas Turbine Fuel (D2880), and Kerosine (D3699), and is also the only instrument recommended for testing waterborne paints.

The Setaflash results have established relationships with other flash test methods such as Pensky Martens, Abel and Tag.

Supplied with: 2 ml syringe, 0 to 300C secondary reference thermometer with certificate of calibration, and instruction manual.
