Corrosion / Weathering

Salt spray test chambers

The salt spray tests and the cyclic corrosion tests are invaluable when it comes to predicting and checking the life span of materials and their surface coatings.

Corrosion test chambers Q-Fog

Cyclic corrosion test chambers, conform to more than 50 international standards. Current research indicates that, with cyclic corrosion tests, the relative corrosion rates, structure and morphology are more similar to those seen outdoors.
Thanks to the custom designed controller, you can easily program even the most complex test cycles.

Q-Fog chambers are available in 2 sizes :

  • SSP : Salt fog - Dry-off - Dwell.
  • CCT : Salt fog - Dry-off - Dwell - Humidity.

Corrosion test chambers Q-Fog CRH

The Q-Fog CRH represents a true breakthrough in the price-performance ratio of corrosion testers with RH control. It has all the advantages of the model CCT, but adds full variable humidity control through the use of an innovative air pre-conditioner. It is compatible with most major automotive corrosion test standards, such as GMW 14872, SAE J2334 and others from Ford, ISO, GB/T, VW, Volvo, Chrysler, Renault, etc. Additionally, this model includes a programmable shower function with an advanced cleaning feature for spray nozzles that prevents clogging frequently found in competitive chambers.

Salt spray chambers S120 / S450 / S1000 / S2000

The ASCOTT chambers make it possible to carry out uninterrupted or interrupted salt spray tests.
Available capacities : 120, 450, 1000 or 2000 liters.
The chambers have the last advanced technologies. All the models have the following features :

  • Opening / closing of the canopy by hydraulic cylinders.
  • Salt spray atomizer made from high performance polymer.
  • Continuous collection of salt spray by CatchPots system.
  • Quality manufacturing and studied ergonomics.
  • Choice of canopy colour without extra charge.

Cyclic corrosion test chambers CC450 / CC1000 / CC2000

The multifunctional CCT Ascott test chambers are probably the most sophisticated and polyvalent test systems on the market for testing corrosion resistance. Manufacturing quality and gravitational design make them the equipment which will perfectly adapt to your laboratory environment.
As standard, Ascott CCT chambers are capable of creating three separate and distinct environments :

  • Salt spray.
  • Condensation humidity.
  • Controlled humidity air drying.
