The Setaflash Series 8 is an automated closed cup flash point tester with a temperature range of ambient to 300 °C (ambient to 572 °F). The instrument uses an electric hot wire ignitor.

There are two modes of flash point operation:
– Flash
– No Flash and Ramp

The ramp mode increases the sample temperature at a rate of 2 °C/min. The dipping sequence occurs automatically every 1 °C up to 100 °C (every 2 °C rise above 100 °C), until either a flash is detected or the end of test temperature is reached. The ignitor uses a new electrical hotwire (a gas flame option is available).

Setaflash Series 8 Closed Cup Flash Point Tester – High Temperature - 82000-0

Features

  • Small sample size, 2 or 4 ml
  • Electric ignitor
  • Automatic dipping and flash detection
  • 64 Test memory & RS232 interface
  • °C or °F temperature display
  • Forced air cooling for rapid test cycling

Additional Information

The bright colour LCD display shows test parameters and the flash point result. The text and colour of top line of the display indicates the instrument status. You can access all functions via menus, navigated by the keypad. Audible prompts are given when you are required to perform an action.
The automatic flash detection system is tuned to ignore halo and other false flash effects, enhancing precision and accuracy. Barometric pressure is measured by an internal barometer, and the correction is automatically applied to the test result.

Flash point testing at low temperature
For tests with a starting temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) or lower, you must connect the Series 8 ActiveCool to a chilled water supply that is maintained at 5 °C with a flow of at least 0.6 l/min
