Seta Multiflash Tag Flash Point Module – 34400-0

The automatic Tag module conforms precisely to national and international Tag closed cup flash point test methods. It comprises a water bath, sample cup, lid and shutter, temperature probe and a DIPS pod containing the dipping mechanism with co-axial gas/electric ignitor.

The Tag module must be used with the Multiflash Automatic Flash Point – Universal Base Unit (34000-0). The base unit recognizes that the Tag module is connected and instantaneously sets up standard test parameters and calibration data. The Cooling Boost Accessory (34008-0) is required to test all types of samples.

Methods: ASTM D56, ASTM D3934, ASTM D3941, ASTM E502, IP 491, IP 492, ISO 1516, ISO 1523


  • A fully self-contained flash point test module
  • Ambient to 93 °C (200 °F)
  • Conforms to the Tag test method requirements
  • Automatic set up of test parameters
  • Automatic heating control and flash detection
  • Automatic test results and end of test audible warning
  • Centigrade or Fahrenheit temperature display
  • Automatic barometric correction

The flashpoint test area consists of a liquid-filled bath with an internal cooling coil, a removable sample cup and lid, and an overflow vessel. The bath is heated by the hotplate within the Universal Base Unit (34000-0). The cooling coil is connected to the Cooling Boost Accessory (34008-0) by flexible pipes allowing circulation of water or cooling fluid via a cryostat for sub-ambient tests. The top of the bath has a port for a temperature probe. The lid of the sample cup is equipped with a sliding shutter, and ports for the flash detector and sample temperature probe.

The DIPS pod contains the shutter actuator and ignitor dipping mechanism with a coaxial gas jet / electric hot wire ignitor.

The sample and bath temperature probes are class A PRTs, and flash detection is by a thermocouple.

Safety features include an initial dip to check that the sample is below its flashpoint at the start of the test and PRT checks to ensure that the correct probes are connected and are immersed in bath liquid or sample. When in search mode, the software limits the maximum temperature to 50 °C above "expected flash". An over-temperature cut-out is mounted on the base flange of the bath.
