Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Small Scale Closed Cup Tester (Ramp Method)
|Publication Date:||1 November 2007|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method covers the determination of the flash point of aviation turbine fuel, diesel fuel, kerosine and related products in the temperature range of 40 to 135°C by a small scale closed cup apparatus.
This test method is only applicable to homogeneous materials that are liquid at or near ambient temperature and at temperatures required to perform the test.
This test method is not applicable to liquids contaminated by traces of highly volatile materials.
This test method is a dynamic method and depends on a definite rate of temperature increase. It is one of many flash point methods available, and every flash point test method, including this one, is an empirical one.
If the user's specification requires a defined flash point method, neither this test nor any other method should be substituted for the prescribed method without obtaining comparative data and an agreement from the specifier.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Section 7 and the Material Safety Data Sheet for the product being tested.
