Ignition point measurement – fire point

Do you want to have the ignition point of your samples measured? The Calnesis laboratory performs these measurements for any type of sample.

Qu’est ce que le ignition point ?

The ignition point is the temperature at which a liquid compound emits enough vapor to form a mixture with air whose combustion is self-sustaining once it has started (flame, spark, etc.). Also called “fire point”, it should not be confused with the point flashpoint or the auto-ignition point. This property makes it possible to characterize the combustibility of a liquid.

How to measure the ignition temperature?

In general, the compound is placed in a reactor under stirring in the presence of a flame. During an increasing temperature ramp, the lowest temperature at which persistent combustion of vapors is observed is the ignition point (for a minimum of 5 seconds).
