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 recognises 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 sample.

Additional Information

The flash point 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 flash point 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.
