Q. Which SETAFLASH is best for my requirements? 1) How many samples do you need to test per day? Series 3 is a manual test instrument and designed for low test throughput of typically no more than 10 samples per day. For volume sample testing the automatic Series 8 instrument is recommended. 2) Gas versus
digitally preset target temperature circuitry. Integral. LCD display, NIST traceable thermometer, disposable fuel tank and electronic timer are standard. In accordance with: ASTM D 3278. “Flash Point of Liquids by Small Scale. Closed Cup Apparatus”. ASTM D 3828. “Flash Point by Small Scale Closed. Tester”. ASTM D 4206.
There are 4 major “closed cup” flash point tests which are specified nationally and internationally for testing fuels and other materials: Pensky-Martens, Small Scale (rapid equilibrium), Abel and Tag. The Small Scale Closed Cup test is specifically identified by the following test methods: ASTM D3278, ASTM D3828, IP303,.
