VIENNA, Australia -- Grabner Instruments has launched Miniflash Touch for flash point testing petroleum products and solvents.

The testers work according to ASTM D6450 and D7094, which give results equivalent to the Pensky Martens ASTM D93*) / EN ISO 2719 and Abel and Tag closed cup methods.

The new Miniflash Touch analyzer features new methods for simulation of EN ISO 3679 and EN ISO 3680 for testing hazardous goods according to transport regulations. Miniflash Touch facilitates control of the heat rate, ignition energy, and amount of atmospheric oxygen present in the combustion chamber to simulate every closed cup flashpoint method within varying environmental conditions. The new model allows testing at an extended temperature range from 0-400° C and facilitates cleaning by introducing a new automatic ignition cleaning method.

Miniflash Touch’s color touch-screen runs in a Microsoft Windows for easy networking and data transfer, seamless LIMS integration via LAN, and full remote operation of the analyzer. Further highlights are USB data transfer and printer support, intuitive menu navigation and a vast method and data storage. The unique flash point combustion graphics give users the opportunity to follow every millisecond of the flash combustion in unprecedented detail.
