Key features

Saves you time

Saves you time

The optimized cooling technology of PMA 500 ensures fast readiness for subsequent testing which saves valuable time – even for different sample types. This means you are able to process more samples compared to any other instrument on the market and amounts to a saving of up to 10 % of the time per measurement compared with using competitive instruments. Thanks to an encapsulated electric igniter with a 10 times longer product life, PMA 500 requires maintenance effort nearing zero, and guarantees excellent reproducibility and repeatability, while lowering operational costs.

A number of additional accessories extend the range of applications and support. PMA 500 can be optionally equipped with a gas igniter kit, a mini-cup, and calibration tools including a guide for the calibration procedure.

Unrivaled ease of use

Unrivaled ease of use

The fast and straightforward handling of PMA 500 makes flash point testing easier than ever before. The customizable user interface with the look and feel of a smartphone is operated by a 7” touchscreen which offers all relevant data for a successful flash point determination. Preferred menu items and frequently used methods are directly accessible from the main screen and can be customized. Using state-of-the-art technology, the instrument guarantees optimal heating control as well as the highest precision, ensuring flash point testing according to the given standards. 

Maximum safety

Maximum safety

Meeting the highest safety standards is a prerequisite for Anton Paar. PMA 500 is manufactured from superior-quality components to ensure maximum safety and a sturdy construction. PMA 500 features a unique fire-detection concept with a built-in fire extinguisher. Additionally, the instrument indicates the block and sample temperature, so you know when to continue safely at all times.

Automated steps make your work easier

Automated steps make your work easier

PMA 500’s modern design gives you an excellent user experience on a small footprint. Due to the integrated automatic motor-driven multi-function head, the instrument guarantees secure and smooth connection of sensors and actuators such as a stirrer and multi-detector. You don’t lose time connecting cables before or even after flash point testing. Plus, PMA 500 offers a high degree of automation since the lid of the test cup can be moved up and down with a minimum of manual handling. This feature is optional, can be easily switched off, and gives you flexibility in measuring a broad variety of samples.
