Just four easy steps are required for a safe low temperature flash point testing at maximum precision:
- Enter sample ID and operator name
- Select the measurement standard and add additional parameters (e.g. expected flash point)
- Fill the sample cup with sample (1 mL or 2 mL), place the sample cup inside the measurement chamber, and close the door
- Press the RUN button
The instrument now visualizes the measurement procedure on the screen showing the sample and oven temperature as well as pressure gauge displaying the pressure increase after ignition. After the measurement the flash point temperature is corrected for the atmospheric pressure and rounded to the next 0.5 °C. The result will be saved in the corresponding result file. To improve the measurement further, it is possible to use a cooling cup to prevent ice formation during the cool down process.
Characteristics of the low temperature flash point testing can be seen in the Combustion Graphics™. This makes ERAFLASH LT the ideal solution for R&D as well as quality control.
