Determines flash points of liquid products by the Tag Closed Cup method. Features stepless variable heat control with reference dial for accurate repeat setting of temperature rate of rise per specifications. Also available with gas burner instead of electric heater. Precision machined cover mechanism simultaneously opens slide shutter and applies test flame to sample at the turn of a knob. Includes liquid bath with constant level overflow, brass test cup, plated brass thermometer ferrules and test flame reference bead. Bath and cover mechanism are constructed of plated brass. Heater is enclosed in a cast aluminum base assembly.
For flash point determinations of liquids with a viscosity of below 5.5 centistokes (cSt) at 104°F (40°C) or below 9.5cSt at 77°F (25°C), and a flash point below 200°F (93°C) except cut-back asphalts, those liquids which tend to form a surface film under test conditions and materials which contain suspended solids.
