The automatic Tag closed-cup tester measures the flash point, the lowest temperature at which the vapors of a sample ignite upon the application of an ignition source.

The tester can also be used to detect the ability of a sample to yield flammable vapors when maintained at an equilibrium temperature by the flash/no flash method.

TAG 4 is suitable for flash point applications of jet fuels, solvents, chemicals, etc.

Features of TAG 4

Benefits at a Glance

  • Two cooling systems with Peltier elements are available: an economical air-cooled model and a low-temperature version with external water cooling
  • The two ignition systems in each unit give you the flexibility to work with an electric or gas igniter: if the gas ignition is used, the electric igniter will automatically relight the gas flame during the test, if necessary
  • The patented One-Twist swivel-around multi-function head guarantees the safe and easy one-hand connection of all sensors and actuators such as the shutter release, igniter and detector contacts
  • An extended measuring range up to 110 °C enables you to go beyond the conventional scope of the method

Convenient Operation

  • Test initiation by pre-installed standard test methods and ability to customize methods by user-defined programs
  • Outside flame sensors increase the system’s safety, especially for work with samples that have no conventional flash point but burn outside the test cup (e.g. due to flame-inhibiting components)
  • Splashproof touch-key panel with large LCD
  • A multi-detector combines the flash point detector and the temperature probe in a solid housing with a perfectly adjusted immersion depth

Customized User Flexibility

  • PC-software FPPNet (optional) for convenient remote handling and test data storage
  • Insulation hood (optional) to protect the cover and shutter assembly from icing during low-temperature flash point tests
  • Draft deflector (optional) recommended for gas ignition tests
  • Calibration set (optional)
  • Small-volume sample cup (optional)
