MINIFLASH Flash Point Tester


MINIFLASH TOUCH is a uniquely designed flash point tester for the determination of flashpoints of liquids and solids, using the Grabner flash point detection method of measuring the instantaneous pressure increase inside the continuously closed chamber, triggered by an energy-controlled electric arc. Heating the test chamber from the top avoids condensation of high volatile compounds, significantly improving the test results.

Peltier Protection Technology™

For a quick sample turnaround and extended instrument life time Grabner Instruments developed fast thermoelectric regulation of heating and cooling. This technology permits to extend the measuring temperature to well above 400°C and optimizes Peltier performance and life time.

Ignition Protection Technology™

Ignition Protection Technology™ is intrinsic to the MINIFLASH design. Only 1-2 mL of sample are required for testing the flash point – without an open flame! The continuously closed cup design, automatic explosion probing and a controlled air feed protect against fire and offensive fumes – for unmatched safety in flashpoint testing!

Combustion Analysis™

Sometimes samples contain small concentrations of flammable compounds, which do not show a definite flashpoint. MINIFLASH TOUCH detects even very small flames and graphically visualizes the presence of contaminations in those samples.
