PM-93 Pensky-Martens Flash Point Tester

Part Number 35000-0

The Seta PM-93 is a fully automated Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Tester which combines strict method conformance with the latest control technology and safety systems to provide the next generation of flash point instruments.

An intuitive graphic user interface and 8.4” SVGA colour touch screen operation provide unparalleled ease of use with real time display of test progress. Test profiles, operator names, test methods and storage of unlimited results are provided through the embedded operating system. Test results can be emailed, saved to a memory stick, output to LIMS or produced in hard copy with the printer option.


A robust lid lifting arm provides a single raising or lowering action for loading and removing the test cup. The lid and shutter is integral to the arm and fitted with a fire detection probe, fire extinguishing manifold, ignitor, flash detector and sample temperature probe. Stirrer drive, shutter actuator and ignitor dipping mechanism are contained within the arm. Specially designed geometry ensures correct alignment of the lid and shutter to cup, every time

Ignition source uses an extended life hot wire with gas option. Sample temperature probe is a class A PRT, and flash detection is by a thermocouple. Safety features include PRT checks, safety dip before starting, over-temperature cut out, gas shut off, and optional fire extinguisher. The instrument uses 'SafeFlash' thermally activated integral fire extinguisher (factory fit option) which discharges over the test area, it is driven by a cylinder contained within the instrument and is replaceable by the user.

Rapid turnaround between tests is achieved using a high capacity cooling fan and optimised air flow.

Calibration features include sample PRT and barometric pressure sensor with password protected access.
