Since 1966, Tanaka has been delivering automated flash point testers for higher productivity at petroleum laboratories. The theme of the 8th generation model series is “ Ergonomic, Versatile, Robust and Safe “
●Ergonomic: Color coordinated display and switches for high visibility / intuitive operation, and universal design
●Versatile: USB port for USB flash drive or keyboard, password protection and enhanced data storage
●Robust: Premium design and high quality finish suited for many years of reliable use
●Safe: Enhanced safety with fire containment system (Default for apm, atg & aco, optional for abl)
Further improved Swing Arm Assembly for easy setting and cleaning :
After inserting the test cup in the instrument, just lower the swing arm assembly onto the test cup to set all the necessary components for the test, including the ignition source, temperature sensor, flash detector and stirrer (in case of apm, atg and abl series). After the test, lift the arm to the complete upright positon for easy cleaning.
atg-8 is an automated Tag Closed Cup flash point tester.
Model atg-8wfc is with a conventional water bath. Model atg-8afc and atg-8lfc are available for the low-temperature range. The cooling/heating for these models are by Peltier modules (Model atg-8lfc requires an optional chiller).
Furthermore, it is standard equipped with fire containment system. It can extinguish fire effectively by flowing quenching gas (N2 or CO2) from external connection port.
