Flash Point Testing made safe by Eralytics

THE SAFE SIDE OF FLASH POINT TESTING   The ERAFLASH measures according the continuously closed cup flash point testing methods ASTM D7094 and ASTM D6450. ASTM D7094 shows no statistical bias to the former ASTM D93 Pensky Martens method. The sample volume is only 2 ml. During measurements an electric arc ignites the sample vapor and the analyzer determines the flash point by the pressure change inside the closed cup. Flash point testing never was saf...Read More
