CTL51 - Sustained Combustibility Test Apparatus - UN Test

Determines whether a sample of liquid can sustain combustion when held at the specified isothermal temperature.

Benefits

  • Compact unit (self contained)
  • Sloping skirt under hot plate – enables fall off of overspill in the event that a test sample spills on to the hotplate
  • Temperature variable ramp rate and set point facility for researching other conditions
