Automatic Abel Flash Point Tester

The automated Abel flash point tester is used primarily to test flammable and combustible materials for shipping and safety regulations. It provides an increased temperature range of operation allowing greater flexibility in testing samples according to the Abel test method. The unit has a test range up to 110°C and can be extended down to –30°C by the addition of an external chiller.

The flash point tests are simply conducted by mounting the flash cup filled with sample into the test position and selecting a test method. Automation routines provide accurate test results. A quick search method is available to determine the flash point of unknown samples. The dual thermal and ionization detection system allows for testing all types of products. Ignition can be by gas flame or electrical ignitor. The test results are automatically corrected to standard pressure (101.3 kPa). The system is equipped with a Pt-100 RTD probe designed to duplicate the response time of a mercury-in-glass thermometer and with multiple sensors that continually monitor instrument function, displaying an error message if a problem is detected. Supervision software is included.
