Cleveland Flash & Fire Point Tester: CLA 5
The automatic Cleveland Open-Cup (COC) measures and describes the properties of a sample in response to heat and a test flame under controlled conditions. The flash point measures the tendency to form a flammable mixture with air while the fire point indicates the tendency of sustained burning.
CLA 5 is suitable for flash and fire point applications of lubricants or bituminous material.
