APM-7 Automated Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point Tester

The APM-7 automates the Pensky-Martens Closed Cup (PMCC) flash point test. The cup cover and stirrer are installed on a swing arm assembly for easy one-hand setup. The flash detector is a reliable and easy-to-maintain low mass thermocouple. An acrylic windshield provides draft protection. Quick cooling is facilitated by a high velocity fan.

Single Action Setting: The cup cover and the stirrer are permanently mounted on a swing-arm assembly, which allows easy handling of the test cup cover. It eliminates handling of the hot cup cover after completing a test.

Easy Operation: Select a test mode and enter the expected flash point; while the instrument executes the test, you are free to do other lab work. The instrument follows the exact procedures prescribed in the test method, and the completion of the test cycle is signaled by beeps. The test result is brightly shown on the VFD module.

Interchangeable Ignition Source: The APM-7 is equipped with both a gas and electric igniter as the ignition source. It only takes a few minutes to switch from gas to electric or vice versa.

Draft Protection Shield Cover: A tinted acrylic cover not only insures the flame integrity but reduces the glare from the electric igniter coil.

Modular Design: The tester consists of a computer control unit and a test head unit; the components may be placed up to 3 meters apart. An optional Changeover unit can be purchased to attach the control unit to another type of flash point test head unit (ATG-8 or ACO-8/8as). The control unit is designed to control any of the three different flash point test head units.
