Test parameters, instrument status and flash point results are shown on the bright colour LCD display – all easily accessed via menus, navigated by the keypad, which guides the operator through a straightforward testing process.
The instrument uses an electric hot wire ignitor and is designed with two modes of flash point operation; Flash/No Flash and Ramp. Ramp Mode increases the sample temperature at the rate of 2°C/min and automatically dips the ignitor every 1°C up to 100°C (every 2°C above 100°C), until either a flash is detected or the end of test temperature is reached.
During the test the automatic flash point is set to ignore halo and other false flash effects reducing the risk of inaccurate test results and enhancing repeatability. At the end of the 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 the memory which can be downloaded to a PC or printer via the USB port for further reporting.
