Atmosfär Premium Chambers – Key Features

AT1300IP Premium

Atmosfär chambers have been specifically designed for fully automatic testing in accordance with highly demanding laboratory-accelerated corrosion tests which have become increasingly popular in some sectors of the automotive industry.

These tests are cyclic in nature and comprise of exposure under controlled and varying conditions of temperature and humidity, with intermittent spraying of a salt solution directly on to the samples under test, from a high level swaying spray bar.

The Premium version of the Atmosfär Range offers the most extensive and flexible Test Standard scope solution on the market place with increased temperature ranges and faster temperature transition times. 

Two model sizes

  • 1300 Ltr (45.9 cu ft)
  • 2600 Ltr (91.8 cu ft)

Extensive optional testing / chamber facilities:

Extensive range of optional testing facilities, such as SO2 gas dosing and liquid immersion.

The chamber can be selected with one of three different cooling options

  • Lite Version down to 20°C / 68°F
  • Sub Zero version down to -20°C / -4°F
  • Sub Zero version down to -40°C / -40°F

Water cooling options are available for the sub zero options if heat dissipation is an issue where the chamber is installed.

All Ascott Atmosfär Premium Corrosion Test chambers feature:

  • Oscillating spray bar with magnetically coupled drive system, for compliance with the most demanding automotive test standards.
  • Integrated air conditioning unit, to achieve demanding temperature and humidity combinations.
  • Psychrometric humidity control module, for more exacting control of humidity, especially at levels around 95% RH.
  • Temperature and humidity profile Logging Software.
  • 110mm Entry Port
  • Digital Salt Solution Consumption Indicator.
  • Additional Salt Solution Atomizers for standards such as VDA 233-102, RNES-G-00005, Renault ECC1, SAE J etc.
  • Temperature and Humidity Control @ 80°C / 80%RH
  • Rapid ramping from 35°C to 70°C in 15 minutes
  • Dual salt spray atomizer system
  • Salt Solution Tanks.

Plus the features of Ascott CCT corrosion test chambers:

  • Ergonomic design low loading threshold for easy loading and unloading.

  • ‘Easy Open’ pneumatically operated canopy.
  • Dry seal gasket prevents wetting operator’s clothes, etc.

  • Easily accessible salt spray atomizer(s) in transparent hard-wearing acrylic.
  • Purge of the cabinet interior with fresh air after testing and before the chamber is opened.
  • 7’’ ‘touch’ activated screen, with a 480p (0.38 megapixel) high resolution display, and a ‘menu’ driven icon based commands, available in multiple languages for ease of understanding and use.
  • Temperature and Humidity monitoring in SCADA using OPC-UA. (Open Platform Communications United Architecture)
  • Large capacity memory, allowing for extensive customer programmes to be stored, 254 main programmes of up to 200 steps, 100 sub programmes and 254 single line programmes.
  • RJ45 communications port for connection to a local area network (LAN) for logging and remote programming via a computer running optional Ascott software (ACC121)
  • A real-time, user configurable ‘clock’ to enable different test samples to be batched and have their exposure time monitored separately, with alarms to warn when a pre-set test period has been completed.
  • External portable salt solution tanks for ease of cleaning – One at 90L and one at 160L.
  • On/Off function with Temperature control for intermittent salt spray applications.
  • Ambient drying function to open/close the canopy during a test, exposing the samples to ambient conditions in the room.
