  • Flash point determination of Asphalt, Tar and Bitumen by use of Grabner miniflash

    Measuring flashpoint of asphalt, bitumen or tar is a most challenging test. Industrial coal tar pitch for example is solid at ambient temperature, softens around 100-130°C and becomes fully liquid at 180°C. When cooled down the tar sample becomes rock solid in seconds, making it difficult to clean flashpoint testing equipment and to continue with the measurements. The MINIFLASH flashpoint tester ...
