BROKEN ARROW, OK – The MINIFLASH Touch is the latest addition to the Grabner® Instruments line of portable flashpoint testers that combines all of the field-proven advantages of the MINIFLASH tester line with a new color touch screen design.
The MINIFLASH Series from Grabner® Instruments is a uniquely designed group of flashpoint testers that uses a patented flashpoint method to determine the flashpoint of liquids and solids. That method offers the highest repeatability and reproducibility, correlates well to the D93 Pensky-Martens method, and delivers results equivalent to other well-known closed-cup standards.
Typical applications include the fast screening of diesel and jet fuels, the flash-point testing of potentially flammable goods, pharmaceuticals, aroma products, paints, varnishes, engine and lubricating oils, and determining the composition of solid wastes and unknown mixtures of liquid hydrocarbons. The MINIFLASH’s unique design allows it to be used for such difficult applications as flash-point testing of contaminated samples and biodiesel fuels.
The MINIFLASH Touch’s large color screen runs on Microsoft® Windows® software and features an intuitive menu navigation that requires no training for flashpoint testing. Along with its convenient touch screen design, the MINIFLASH Touch offers an extended temperature range from 0 to 400oC, hassle-free communication with USB, Ethernet, LAN, RS232, LIMS and PCs, and nearly unlimited storage capacity for programs and results.
The MINIFLASH Touch utilizes Grabner Instruments’ Ignition Protection Technology™ for the safest flashpoint testing. This technology is intrinsic to the MINIFLASH design. Only a 1-2ml sample is required for testing flashpoint—without an open flame. The unit’s continuously closed-cup design, automatic explosion probing and a controlled air feed protect against fire and offensive fumes for unmatched safety during flashpoint tests.
To visualize the presence of contaminants and small concentrations of flammable compounds in samples, Grabner Instruments developed cutting-edge Combustion Analysis™, which provides users with the ability to follow every millisecond of flash combustion in unprecedented detail.
For quick sample turnaround and extended instrument life, Grabner Instruments developed its advanced Peltier Protection Technology™. The unit’s continuously closed cup design and small sample volume ensures maximum safety and reduces sample waste. Its fast thermoelectric cooling and user friendly design further reduce labor costs. Its compact size and rugged housing make the MINIFLASH Touch the perfect solution for mobile labs and for military and other demanding applications.
The MINIFLASH Touch is available in North America from AMETEK Petrolab Company, a unit of AMETEK Process & Analytical Instruments, a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electromechanical devices with annualized sales of $3.0 billion.
