• Rapid Flash Tester, Open-Cup

Rapid Flash Tester, Open-Cup

Verifies the flash point or the sustained burning qualities of small samples in the range of –30°C to +300°C.

  • Conforms to ASTM D4206; DOT CFR 49-173.115; IATA; ISO 9038 and related specifications
  • One minute test with a 2mL sample
  • Simple to operate

The Rapid Tester® provides rapid determinations of flash point or sustained burning qualities by using a small sample. A flash/no flash test result is achieved in one minute for flash points below 212°F (100°C) with a 2mL sample. Ideally suited for quality assurance and environmental compliance testing as well as actual flash point for paints, fragrances, hydrocarbons and other liquids. Open cup models are used for determining sustained burning qualities characteristics of mixtures of flammable and nonflammable liquids or liquids with widely different flash points when assessing flammability characteristics. Features convenient semi-automatic operation for flash/no flash tests. Set the test temperature on the digital display and inject a 2mL or 4mL sample into the sample cup. The tester quickly stabilizes itself at the desired value, permitting the test flame to be applied and the result to be observed by the operator. The unit also performs conventional determinations of actual flash temperature by the small scale closed tester method. The Open-Cup Model is for sustained burning tests in the range from ambient to 212°F (100°C).
