Automated Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Tester apm-8/8fc

Based on 45 years of experience in manufacturing automated flash point testers, innovative 8th generation series has been released.

The theme of the 8th generation is “Ergonomic, Versatile and Premium”

  • Ergonomically designed display and switches for high visibility for everybody (universal design) and intuitive operation.
  • Enhanced versatility including USB port for optional flash memory or key board, password protection and data storage (200 tests)
  • All-in-one chassis design: compact, light-weight and premium exterior design.

Further improved Swing Arm assembly for easy setting and cleaning:
After inserting the test cup in the instrument, just lower the swing arm assembly onto the test cup to set all the necessary components for the test, including the ignition source, temperature sensor, flash detector and stirrer (in case of abl-8 and apm-8). After the test, tilt the arm to the complete upright position for easy cleaning.
