The flash point is directly related to the volatility of a substance and, hence, its degree of flammability.

Anton Paar’s flash point testing equipment quickly and securely determines the values you require for the safe processing, storage, transportation, and classification of dangerous liquids such as fuels and solvents.

High sample throughput and low running costs with PMA range

The PMA 500 and PMA 300 Pensky-Martens (closed-cup) flash point testers bring you automatic, high-precision flash point testing in test laboratories for the petroleum and chemical industries. Tests are performed according to standard methods ASTM D93, EN ISO 2719, and IP 34. Post-measurement, the PMA 500 cools 20% faster than comparable competitor instruments, saving time and speeding sample throughput. The electric igniter design means it lasts up to 10 times longer than alternatives.

High accuracy, automated measurement, excellent heating/cooling control, low running costs, and unmatched ease of use underpin the value. Of course, all of this is provided with the highest safety levels.

Key features

  • The highest sample throughput instrument on the market
  • The most powerful and safest Pensky-Martens flash point tester
  • High-performance hardware reduces ongoing costs
  • Full compliance with international standards
  • Measurement data at a glance – anytime, anywhere with optional data storage software
