Product Description

 The Setaflash Series 3 ActiveCool Small Scale Flash Point Tester is the latest instrument in the Setaflash range. It has been designed to rapidly and efficiently carry out Flash / No Flash tests to determine the flash point of liquids and semi-solids in the 10 to 130°C (50 to 266°F) temperature range.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

When used in Ramp mode the temperature of the sample increases at a rate of 2°C/min. An audible prompt to carry out a flash test occurs every 1°C rise up to 100°C (every 2°C rise above 100°C), until a flash is detected, allowing rapid determination of a flash point in accordance with ASTM D7236 and IP 534. The sample cup is heated / cooled by peltier cells. This gives very accurate and stable sub-ambient test temperatures and the benefit of rapid temperature normalisation between tests.

All functions on the Series 3 flash point tester are accessed via a two button keypad and the Seta Multifunctional And Rotational Test (SMART) control feature. The digital display shows test parameters, instrument status, and the test result. An audible prompt is sounded when an action is required from the operator. Gas for the test jet/shutter assembly is supplied from an integral gas tank, which is filled using a standard butane (lighter) refill cartridge.

The automatic flash detection system is tuned to ignore halo and other false flash effects, reducing the chance of mis-interpretation of the test result, and enhancing repeatability. Barometric pressure is measured by an internal barometer, and the correction is automatically applied to the test result.

The instrument is lightweight and suitable for mobile use when operated from the optional DC power adaptor.

Supplied with: 2ml syringe, mains lead and instruction manual.
