Ascott are pleased to announce that all 6 models of the Atmosfär range of corrosion test chambers (including the AtmosfärLite) have been given official approval by Scania. There are only two manufacturers of corrosion test equipment that have approval from Scania to test to STD4319 and STD4445.
During development of an oscillating spray bar for the Atmosfar chamber to ensure close compliance with pluviometry requirements of Volvo Std-423-0014 (ACT-1), Volvo VCS 1027, 1449 (ACT-2) and Ford CETP 00.00-L-467, the Ascott development team were faced with a challenge. Actuation of the spray bar would normally require some form of access hole for the […]
Ascott Analytical Equipment has developed an adaptation of its latest range of cyclic corrosion chambers to suit major vehicle manufacturer, Renault, and its suppliers worldwide.
