The temperature at which oil or solvent gives off sufficient vapour to ignite in air is known as flash point.Flash point apparatus is used to determine the flash point of oil and solvent so that we can store that oil or solvent by creating and maintaining such an environment in which vapour does not form.
There are three types of flash point apparatus.
• Abel Flash Point Apparatus
• Pensky Marten Flash Point Apparatus (Closed Type)
• Cleveland Open Flash Point Apparatus
Abel Flash Point Apparatus
Abel flash point apparatus is used to determine the flash point of petroleum products, solvent, oil and mixtures. Abel flash point apparatus consists of one brass cup fitted with a test flame arrangement. Stirrer is placed in the brass cup for maintaining the uniform temperature of the sample by stirring it. The outer jacket of the water bath is fitted with a stand. Electricity heated apparatus of 500 watt heater is fitted to the stand which can be controlled by an energy regulator. This apparatus is applicable for the products having flash points below 70°C. It is widely used in paint and coating industry, petroleum industry etc.
