Eraflash Flash Point tester

Eralytics product

The ERAFLASH measures according the continuously closed cup flash point testing methods ASTM D7094 and ASTM D6450. ASTM D7094 shows no statistical bias to the former ASTM D93 Pensky Martens method. The sample volume is only 2 ml. During measurements an electric arc ignites the sample vapor and the analyzer determines the flash point by the pressure change inside the closed cup. Flash point testing never was safer and easier.

The Safe Side of Flashpoint Testing, the patented PBT – Peltier Boost Technology by eralytics opens a new dimension of flashpoint testing. Unrivaled measuring speed complements the widest temperature range ever achieved in a single instrument (-25 to 200°C and with the High Temperature Module up to 420°C). The small sample size (1-2 ml) and the continuously closed measuring chamber (ASTM D6450 & D7094) of the ERAFLASH guarantee maximum safety and speed at minimum costs.

Based on the results of international ILS studies ASTM accepted ASTM D7094 as an official method for flashpoint testing in the following fuel specifications: ASTM D396 (Fuel oils), D975 (Diesel fuel oils), D2880 (Gas turbine fuel oils), D3699 (Kerosene) and D7467 (Diesel Fuel Oil, Biodiesel Blend B6 to B20)

For maximum cooling capacity the ERAFLASH LT offers a temperature range of -40°C to 120°C.

For maximum throughput ERAFLASH S10 is the first 10-position autosampler for unattended high speed flash point testing.

ASTM D7094 and ASTM D6450

ASTM D6450 was the first Continuously Closed Cup Flash Point (CCCFP) and uses 1 ml sample volume only. However, the obtained results didn’t compare well to the well-established ASTM D93 Pensky Martens method. Therefore a modified successor method was developed.

ASTM D7094 (Modified CCCFP) uses 2 ml of sample volume and a different heating rate than ASTM D6450 with the effect that it shows no statistical bias to ASTM D93 (Pensky Martens). This was proven by an ASTM round robin test in 2004.

In addition this round robin showed, that the actual repeatability and reproducibility using Pensky Martens flash point testers is up to 50 % worse than the values stated in ASTM D93.

High Sample Throughput with Minimum Maintenance

The innovative PBT – Peltier Boost Technology™ allows previously unmatched heating and cooling rates, which in combination with the low sample volume decreased the turnaround time significantly for flash point testing. Additionally the CPT – Contamination Prevention Technology™, which is a combination of  advanced electrode protection and self-cleaning procedures, reduces the time required for cleaning and maintenance to an absolute minimum, increasing the sample throughput even further.
