Setaflash Series 8 Flash Point Tester HighTemp - Gas Ignitor

Part Number 82050-0

The Setaflash Series 8 is an automated closed cup flash point tester which operates with gas ignition across the temperature range +5 to 300 C.

There are two modes of operation:
- Flash / No Flash
- Ramp

The ramp mode increases the sample temperature at a rate of 2 C/min and automatically dips the ignitor every 1 C up to 100 C (every 2 C above 100 C), until either a flash is detected or the end of test temperature is reached.


The automatic flash point detection system is tuned to ignore halo and other false flash effects, enhancing precision and accuracy. Barometric pressure is measured by an internal barometer, and the correction is automatically applied to the test result.

Peltier cell technology is used for heating and cooling, ensuring precise temperature control and rapid cooldown after a test is completed. The bright colour LCD display shows test parameters and the flash point test result. The text and colour of the top line indicates instrument status. All functions are accessed via menus, navigated by the keypad. Up to 64 test results can be stored in memory, each tagged with a sample reference and operator name. Results can be downloaded to a PC or printer via the RS232C port. The firmware is upgradeable for future developments.

SUPPLIED WITH: Ignitor, 2 ml syringe, mains lead and instruction manual.
