Setaflash Series 8 Closed Cup Flash Point Tester-High Temperature, 82000-0

The Setaflash Series 8 is an automated closed cup flash point tester with a temperature range of ambient to 300°C (ambient to 572°F). The instrument uses an electric hot wire ignitor.

There are two modes of flash point operation; Flash/No Flash and Ramp. The ramp mode increases the sample temperature at a rate of 2°C/min, allowing determination of a flash point in accordance with ASTM D7236 and IP 534. The dipping sequence occurs automatically every 1°C up to 100°C (every 2°C rise above 100°C), until either a flash is detected or the end of test temperature is reached. The ignitor uses a new electrical hotwire (a gas flame option is available).

Methods: ASTM D3278, ASTM D3828, ASTM D7236, ASTM E502, BS 2000-523, CLP Regulations EC No 1272/2008, EPA 1020 A & B, IP 523, IP 524 (Obs), IP 534, ISO 3679, ISO 3680 (Obs), UN Class 3 Non-viscous Flammable Liquids

The bright colour LCD display shows test parameters and the flash point result. The text and colour of top line of the display indicates the instrument status. All functions are accessed via menus, navigated by the keypad. Audible prompts are given when an action is required from the operator.

The automatic flash point detection system is tuned to ignore halo and other false flash effects, reducing the chance of misinterpretation of the test result, and enhancing repeatability. Barometric pressure is measured by an internal barometer, and the correction is automatically applied to the test result. At the end of a flash point test, the sample cup is cooled by forced air to reduce the cycle time between tests. Up to 64 results can be stored in memory, tagged with operator and sample references, and can be downloaded to a PC or printer via the RS232C port. The firmware is upgradeable for future developments.
