What Is A Flash Point?
The flash point refers to the lowest temperature at which a petroleum product is heated to the point where it flashes in contact with the flame under specified conditions. The flash point is the lowest temperature at which a fire hazard occurs. The lower the flash point, the more flammable the fuel and the greater the risk of fire. According to the flash point, the fire safety measures when transporting, storing and using fuel can be determined. The flash point is an important quality indicator for judging the composition of the oil fraction. In general, the higher the vapor pressure of the oil, the lighter the composition of the fraction, the lower the flash point of the oil; on the contrary, the heavier the fraction of the oil, the higher the flash point. Therefore, in the production process, the operating index can be adjusted according to the flash point of the oil to propose the light fraction contained therein.
