Grabner Instruments Messtechnik GmbH

Miniflash touch trailblazer for the new age in flashpoint testing


Vienna, Austria -- Grabner Instruments MINIFLASH TOUCH is a uniquely designed portable flash-point tester that uses the Grabner continuously closed cup method to determine the flash point of petroleum products, liquids and solids. It combines all of the field-proven advantages of the MINIFLASH tester line with a new full color touch screen design.

The MINIFLASH method offers the highest repeatability and reproducibility, an excellent and ASTM proven correlation) 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 unit’s compact size and rugged housing make it the perfect solution for mobile labs and for military and other demanding applications.

Ignition Protection Technology for safest flash point testing
Ignition Protection Technology is intrinsic to the MINIFLASH design. Only 1-2 ml of sample are required for testing the flashpoint - without an open flame! The continuously closed cup design, automatic explosion probing and a controlled air feed protect against fire and offensive fumes – for unmatched safety in flashpoint testing.

Peltier Protection Technology for excellent thermoelectric performance

For a quick sample turnaround and extended instrument life time Grabner Instruments developed Peltier Protection Technology, an advanced and fast thermoelectric regulation of heating and cooling. This technology permits to extend the measuring temperature to well above 400°C and optimizes Peltier performance and lifetime.

Combustion Analysis for Contamination Analysis and R&D applications
MINIFLASH TOUCH is the first analyzer to visualize the presence of contaminations and small concentrations of flammable compounds in samples by Combustion Analysis. This advanced graphical analysis gives users the opportunity to follow every millisecond of the flash combustion in unprecedented detail. As such MINIFLASH TOUCH is used for flashpoint testing of contaminated samples, biodiesel fuels and for other difficult applications.
