Rapid Tester Flash Point Test

Rapid Flash Point Tester
Model Shown FP-1000/EGA with optional External Gas Adapter

The Rapid Tester® is a semiautomatic instrument for determining the flash point temperature / combustibility of flammable liquids.

Closed cup test temperatures from ambient to 572°F (300°C) are automatically controlled by the set-a-temp adjustable digitally preset target temperature circuitry. Integral digital LCD display, NIST traceable thermometer, disposable fuel tank and electronic timer are standard.




  • Achieve the high level of digital performance
  • With better than 99% comparability you can use the Rapid Tester® with confidence.
  • The high contrast LCD display has 1/2" characters for ease of reading and is switch selectable between degrees Fahrenheit and Centigrade
  • A thermometer traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology is also included
  • Test time is only one minute with a 2 ml sample for flash points below 212°F (100°C). You can run ten tests with the Rapid Tester® in the time that it takes to perform just one by other methods. The 2 ml/4 ml sample is a fraction of the large sample required by other flash point methods. This reduces sampling and disposal problems while improving safety.
  • The Rapid Tester is great for:
    • Quality Assurance - Verify the formulation of liquid products with flammable ingredients.
    • Compliance Testing - Often required by regulatory agencies before transport or disposal of liquids
    • Fuel Dilution - Determine the relative percentage of fuel in engine crank case oil to forecast the need for engine rebuilding.
  • Independent laboratory testing has demonstrated that the ASTM D3828 test method utilized by the Rapid Tester® correlates well with other flash point methods. In ASTM D-2 Round Robin testing it was found that the ASTM D3828 test method has the following correlation coefficients:
    • D3828 (Rapid Tester®) vs. D56 (Tag) = 0.9949
    • D3828 (Rapid Tester® vs. D93 (Pensky-Martens) = 0.9943
    • D56 vs. D93 = 0.9926
