PAC Releases Next Generation Flash Point Instrument, the Herzog OptiFlash™ Pensky-Martens

This Latest Release Significantly Improves Safety and Ease of Operation While Meeting Global Standards

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - September 10, 2014) - PAC, a leading global provider of advanced analytical instruments for laboratories and online process applications, is pleased to announce the release of its next generation flash point instrument, the Herzog OptiFlash Pensky-Martens. PAC has over 50 years of experience in developing automatic flash point analyzers for petroleum products, biodiesels, solvents, fluxed bitumen, food, and beverages. This newest edition is enhanced by being simpler to use, easier to clean, and safer to operate. The OptiFlash detects flash points up to 400°C and complies to leading global standards, such as ASTM D93, ISO 2719, EN ISO 2719, IP 34, JIS K2265, and GB/T 261. 

With the OptiFlash's intuitive user interface and built-in automation, users can now easily start a test without having to spend time doing manual tasks like installing the flash point and temperature sensors, as well as installing the test cup for each test. Its innovative design also makes it much easier to clean allowing the user to not only disassemble the cup cover without any tools but also to clean highly viscous samples, like bitumen. This improves the reliability of the test results significantly since customers can now run a quick clean before running any new sample.

"Determining the flash point of a product can be a dangerous test to run just due to its nature. With this in mind, PAC made sure to instill the highest safety standards into the new OptiFlash. With its ultra fast optical flame detector, the OptiFlash is the only instrument that can now detect a fire or even small flames in an extended range around the test cup," says Eric Schellenberger, PAC President. 

This new instrument replaces the previously released PAC flash point instruments, the Herzog HFP 339, Herzog HFP 360, and ISL FP93 5G2.
