flash-point testing device / for the petroleum industry / automatic
for the petroleum industry
The automatic Abel closed-cup tester measures the flash point, the lowest temperature at which the vapors of a sample ignite upon the application of an ignition source. The tester can also be used to detect the ability of a sample to yield flammable vapors when maintained at an equilibrium temperature by the flash/no flash method.
ABA 4 is suitable for flash point applications of jet fuels, solvents, chemicals, etc.
Benefits at a Glance
•Two cooling systems with Peltier elements according to the new ISO 13736 standard: an economical air-cooled model and a low-temperature version with external water cooling
•The two ignition systems in each unit give you the flexibility to work with an electric or gas igniter: if the gas ignition is used, the electric igniter will automatically relight the gas flame during the test, if necessary
•The One-Twist swivel-around multi-function head guarantees the safe and easy one-hand connection of all sensors and actuators such as the shutter release, stirrer, igniter and detector contacts
•An extended measuring range up to 110 °C enables you to go beyond the conventional scope of the Abel method
•Test initiation by pre-installed standard test methods and ability to customize methods by user-defined programs
•Outside flame sensors increase the system’s safety, especially for work with samples that have no conventional flash point but burn outside the test cup (e.g. due to flame-inhibiting components)
