Pensky-Martens Flash Point Tester PMA 5
Pensky-Martens Flash Point Tester PMA 5
Product Code : 01
Product Description

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 vapors 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.
