PMA 5 Pensky-Martens flash point tester

The automatic Pensky-Martens closed-cup tester measures the flash point at the lowest temperature at which the application of an ignition source causes the vapours of a sample to ignite. PMA 5 is suitable for flammability applications on both biodiesel and biodiesel-blended fuels along with distillate fuels like diesel, heating oil and kerosene. It is also commonly used for other potentially flammable liquids.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Integrated fire-extinguishing system automatically controlled or manually released (requires N2 or CO2 gas)
  • The patented One-Twist swivel-around multi-function head guarantees the safe and easy one-hand connection of all sensors and actuators such as the shutter release, stirrer, igniter, and detector contacts
  • A multi-detector combines the flash point detector and the temperature probe in a solid housing with a perfectly adjusted immersion depth
  • Memory for 1 000 tests, 20 operators, 100 sample names
  • Statistical analysis (minimum, maximum, mean, repeatability)
  • Data handling via USB stick for import into MS Excel® or to LIMS

Convenient operation: 

  • Test initiation by pre-installed standard test methods and ability to customise methods by 15 user-defined programmes
  • Calibration protocol printable
  • Menu navigation by jog shuttle system with easy turn-and-push operation and colour-coded LED indication for each operation mode
  • 7” colour graphics display shows real-time measurement
  • Password protection 

Customised user flexibility:

  • PC-software FPPNet (optional) for convenient remote handling and test data storage
  • Stainless steel or small-volume sample cup (optional)
  • Stainless steel sample temperature probe Pt100
  • Barcode scanner or keyboard (optional)

Standard methods:

ASTM D93 A+B+C, ISO 2719 A+B+C, JIS K 2265-3 A+B, IP 34 A+B, GOST R EN ISO 2719
