Salt Spray Corrosion Test Chambers

The salt spray test (also known as salt fog or salt mist) has been the bench-mark corrosion test in many industries for decades. With such a long history, so much test data and many international test standards written around it, it remains a very popular choice as a relatively quick comparative test, to check whether test samples corrode in accordance with expectations. Its main application is therefore to audit the effectiveness of a production process.


Cyclic Corrosion Test (CCT) Chambers

Cyclic Corrosion Testing is a means of recreating/accelerating a variety of corrosive climates, within the convenience of a test chamber. It is a useful test for predicting the life expectancy of materials and components under simulated service life conditions. It has gained wide acceptance, particularly in the automotive industry, where many manufacturers have developed their own CCT standards.


Atmosfär Corrosion Test Chambers

Based on the Ascott CCT chamber, the Atmosfär is equipped with additional features to enable it to comply with the specific automotive test requirements for Ford and Volvo. Most notably this includes the application of salt spray from a high-level ‘swaying’ spray bar, vertical high velocity air drying, refrigerated dehumidification, and a psychrometric humidity measurement system.


Kasternich Humidity Test Chamber

Kesternich test is the common name for a corrosion test combining humidity with sulfur dioxide (SO2) producing acidic rain, in chamber Capacity of 300L. The test method is defined by various standards, DIN EN ISO 6988, DIN 50018, ASTM G87, ISO 3231, ISO 22479 are the most common tests.
The chamber can be used as a condensate humidity chamber, as well as an SO2 chamber, or an SO2 Humidity chamber. the canopy is hermetically sealed and pneumatically held closed for user safety.
