Kesternich SO2 Humidity Chambers
Ascotts latest product is the Kesternich SO2 Humidity chamber, with fully automatic SO2 Dosing function, available in floor standing or table top 300L Capacity. The KH300 simulates acid rain in a controlled temperature environment to evaluate the relative corrosion resistance of the coating or substrate. The test method is defined by various common standards,ISO 6988, DIN 50 018, ASTM G87, ISO 3231, ISO 22479 are the most popular. The parts to be tested are exposed to warm, moist air in combination with a certain amount of sulphur dioxide. The Ascott Kesternich chamber utilises our latest innovative control system to inject SO2 into the chamber in quantities of 0.2L, 1L or 2L in accordance with the relative standard.

The Atmosfär family of test chambers was developed to meet the most demanding automotive corrosion test standards that require tight control of temperature down to -40°C, with controlled humidity and precision pluviometry.
However … many popular automotive test standards do not require such extreme temperatures.
The NEW AtmosfärLite is for advanced automotive test standards with temperatures >20°C, including:
- ISO 16701, Ford CETP 00.00-L-467, Volvo VCS 1027,149 (ACT-1), Volvo VCS 1027,1449 (ACT-2), Volvo STD 423-0014, Volvo STD 1027,1375, GMW14872, CCT1 & CCT2, VDA621-415, Scania STD4319
