SpecificationsThe Rapid Tester 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.
