Certain substances, classified as “flammable” by closed cup flash point testing, may be reclassified as “non-flammable” by combustibility testing. This has significant potential cost reduction implications for the packaging, storage and shipping of many materials.
The Elcometer 6910/2 features an open cup for flash/no-flash finite determinations or sustained combustion tests, audible and on-screen prompts and easy calibration. Flash point tests can be conducted in less than two minutes with a temperature range from ambient to 300°C (ambient to 572°F).
A manually operated flame sweeping arm is fitted to the cup and gas is supplied from the integral tank via a control valve. The flash or sustained combustion characteristics of the sample are observed visually by passing the test flame over the sample.
