  • Flash point detection by thermocouple and ionization ring
  • Electric or Gas ignition: Software selectable, User Friendly Manual Switching
  • Flash point operation range between ambient and 405°C
  • Integrated Dual Fan System directly cools test cup and surrounding environment
  • 8.4” LCD Touch Screen Interface allows for easy viewing and navigation
  • Automatic Barometric Pressure Correction
  • Fire Suppression System floods instrument with inert gas in the event of a fire

The Automatic Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Analyzer represents a perfect union of next-generation technology with traditional robust quality. The system software runs on an integrated processor PC running the latest Windows operating system. The 8.4” touch screen interface fully displays all operator parameters and results on a single screen. A three (3) position mechanical lift system for the cover and motor assembly is fully automated and software selectable: Open – Clean – Test for one touch positioning of the test cup. The instrument comes standard with two flash detector systems including a thermocouple and ionization ring detection. Over 65,000 results of data can be stored on the local hard drive. Integrated Dual Fan System directly cools the test cup and the environment around test cup. An unlimited number of user programs can be applied, including a quick test that safely tests from ambient, puts the flash point result into the EFP of the official run, and prompts user to refresh the sample, virtually assuring no fires ever occur. In addition, the instrument comes standard with an inert gas fire suppression system.
