Flash Point Testers
According to the US Department of Transportation in CFR49; 173.120, Flash point is the minimum temperature at which a liquid gives off vapor within a test vessel in sufficient concentration to form an ignitable mixture with air near the surface of the liquid. The regulation defines the test methods allowed for differing types of liquids and all of our testers fit into one or more of these definitions.
Our flash point testers from Stanhope Seta; include models for ASTM D93 Pensky Marten, D56 TAG Closed Cup, D92 Cleveland Open Cup, and D3828 (D3278) Small Scale Closed Cup Rapid Equilibrium method.
