The Seta PM-93 is a fully automated Pensky-Martens closed cup flash point tester which combines strict method conformance with the latest control technology and safety systems to provide the ultimate level of fast, accurate and safe analysis.

You can determine flash points up to 400 °C using either standard mode for where the flash point is known or search mode for when it is not. Once complete, the PM-93 graphically displays results on the LCD screen. You can save results to the internal memory, email the results, export results to a USB, or transfer results via QR code.

SQC software analyses results, calculates mean, standard deviation, standard error and repeatability and plots results in accordance with ASTM D6299.
