Original Ascott chamber returns to HQ 30 years after it was made – and it’s still in perfect working order
A corrosion test chamber manufactured 30 years ago by Ascott Analytical Ltd has arrived back at headquarters – in perfect working order.
One of the manufacturer’s long-standing customers, a US-based aerospace and power generation company, wanted to upgrade its old salt spray chamber, used to test the climate resistance of its products.
Ascott sold the company a new model and brought the original back to its factory, 30 years on, the chamber – complete with PATT testing stickers and service records – was still in perfect working order.
It was due to be re-calibrated this April, for another year of daily use.
