What is the Penske Marten Flash Point Tester? :-

  • The test method is standardized by ASTM D93 and is based on heating a sample of the liquid at a controlled rate, while continuously passing a flame over the surface of the sample. The temperature at which a flash occurs, i.e., a momentary flame appears on the surface of the liquid, is noted as the flash point of the liquid.

What is the use of PMCC Flash point tester ? :-

  • The flash point of a liquid is an important parameter for its safe handling and transportation, as well as for determining the suitability of the liquid for certain applications. The Penske-Martens tester is widely used in the petroleum industry and other industries that deal with flammable liquids, such as chemical manufacturing, transport, and storage.

What is the Application of PMCC Closed cup Flash Point tester? :-

  • Quality Control: The Automatic PMCC Flashpoint tester is used to ensure that the flash point of petroleum products and other flammable liquids meet the specified quality standards. This helps to ensure safe handling and storage of these products.
  • Process Control: The PMCC tester is used in process control to monitor the flash point of products during manufacturing. This can help to detect any process deviations or problems that could affect the quality of the product.
  • Regulatory Compliance: The PMCC flash point tester is used to comply with regulatory requirements for transportation, storage, and handling of flammable liquids. These regulations often specify minimum flash point values for different products.
  • Research and Development: The Penske martens closed cup flash point tester is used in research and development to study the behaviour of flammable liquids under different conditions. This can help to develop new products or improve the properties of existing products.
  • Fire Investigation: The PMCC flash point tester can be used in fire investigation to determine the flash point of a liquid that was involved in a fire. This information can help to determine the cause of the fire and prevent similar incidents in the future.

What is the difference between Open cup flash point tester and closed cup flash point tester ?

The method is Penske-Marten Flash point tester The method is Cleveland Open Cup flash point tester
The temperature range is 40 400 Deg C The temperature range is 79 400 Deg C
It is normally used for Evaporable samples It is normally used for Non Evaporable samples
It is suitable to samples like Diesel, Bio diesel, Transformer Oil etc It is suitable to samples like Engine oil, Hydraulic oil, Lubricating oil etc.
Typically used for Low flash and High volatile samples Typically used for High flash and Low volatile samples
It is Much more safer as the Cup containing sample is sealed with lid and minimal chance to catch fire. Slightly less safer and compulsory to use Fire lid whenever flash detects to make it to more safer. HAMCO Automatic Open cup flash point tester is having this facility.
The ASTM Method it complies is ASTM D 93 The ASTM Method it complies is ASTM D 92

HAMCO 30D Automatic Pensky Martene Flash Point Apparatus As Per ASTM D 93

Test Method: – Flash Point is lowest temperature at which application of the ignition source causes the Vapour of a specimen of the sample to ignite under the specified condition of the test.

The temperature of the approximately 70 ml test specimen is increased rapidly at first and then at a slower constant rate as the flash point is approached. At specified intervals a test flame is passed across the cup, to measure the tendency of the test specimen to form a flammable mixture with air under controlled laboratory conditions.
