High humidity, salty air, seawater, and gritting salt – many small and large things in daily life are exposed to corrosive atmospheres. Corrosion does not just affect base metals, but also high-alloyed, tempered materials, plastics, and painted surfaces. That‘s why corrosion resistance is an important quality indicator and safety feature for many products.
With the weisstechnik corrosion chambers with recirculating air and alternating climate control SaltEvent SC/UKWT, you can simulate the effect of salt spray, condensation, and standard climates – individually, combined, and automatically. Thanks to the sophisticated construction and high quality workmanship, the test devices have excellent temperature consistency and in this way, they guarantee correct and reliable results.
Reliable measurement results are possible thanks to
- Optimal spray mist distribution due to a precision two-component nozzle
- Extremely stable temperatures due to a double-shell construction with internal insulation and heated compressed air humidifier with water level control
- Adjustable flow meter and doser for solution
- Test space and hood construction in accordance with all standards: any droplets created by the spray cannot drip on the samples tested.
Tailor-made testing– Optional equipment for individual solutions
Thanks to a camera, you always know the state of your test pieces – without having to interrupt the test by opening the hood. This reduces the testing time and your testing will produce more precise results.
You can measure the corrosive precipitation rate automatically at up to 8 points in the test space. The mean value of the precipitation rate is displayed and updated throughout the test.
You can subject your test pieces to an additional hardness test with direct spraying. Here the spray solution is sprayed directly above the test specimen by means of an automatic spray duct in the test space hood.
For special test requirements, the precipitation quantity can be increased from standard 1.5ml / 80cm2 / h to 5.0ml / 80cm2 / h.
With SIMPATI software, operating, documenting and archiving your test sequences is as easy as child’s play.
