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 or not test samples corrode in accordance with expectations. It’s 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 Atmosfar 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.
