Measuring Pensky Martens Principle

The sample is heated and stirred at specified rates, using one of three defined procedures (A, B, or C). An ignition source is directed into the test cup at regular intervals with simultaneous interruption of the stirring, until a flash is detected.

Measuring Parameters

  • Temperatures: in °C / °F
  • Measuring range: 0°C … +420°C
  • Resolution: 0.01 °C
  • Accuracy: ± 0.1 °C
  • Repeatability / Reproducibility: as per standards methods or better

Measuring Temperature Devices

  • Sample temperature: PT100 sensor completely made in stainless steel resistant to corrosion and shock resistant
  • Bath temperature: PT100 sensor

Pressure sensor
