FAM ILS Testing Program for Flash Point of Motor Oil

Anton Paar participated in the FAM ILS Testing Program 2020 to test the motor oil samples 561 and 562 with the PMA 500 and achieved top results.

As a longstanding producer of flash point testing equipment, Anton Paar added a new innovative instrument to its portfolio – the PMA 500.

PMA 500 offers premium technologies for high sample throughput, an automatic motor-driven multi-function head and a long lasting encapsulated hot wire type electric igniter.

To verify the excellent precision of Anton Paar’s automatic Pensky Martens Closed Cup tester, since 1996 we have been regularly participating in the FAM (Fachausschuss Mineralöl- und Brennstoffnormung, standardization committee for mineral oils and fuels) ILS testing program as well as in the ASTM Proficiency Testing Program (PTP) since 2017 using the PMA 5, the predecessor of the PMA 500.

In this FAM ILS the motor oil samples 561 and 562 have been analyzed by 22 participating laboratories and first time by Anton Paar’s new PMA 500.

The given standard was ISO 2719 Procedure A, covering the flash point determination of distillate fuels (diesel, biodiesel blends, kerosene, motor oil, turbine fuels), new and in-use lubricating oils, and other homogeneous petroleum liquids.
