Salt and Corrosion Testing
Here you find some examples of equipment for salt and corrosion tests. Please contact us for more examples.
One of the main destructive agents of nature is corrosion, being one of the main causes of economic losses. To simulate the resistance that may have a material throughout its useful life in a short period of time, are used the Salt Spray Chambers of salt spray, which consists of a corrosive attack accelerated by an artificial saline fog of composition, in the precise conditions of temperature and pressure.
Standards like: ASTM B117, ISO 9227, DIN 50 021, JIS Z 2371, etc establish a guide of test parameters to simulate the most aggressive atmospheres.
The application of these chambers includes different sectors such as automotive, aeronautical, railway, paintings, etc.
When the dimensions of the pieces are excessively big for a standard chamber, the solution is a visited chamber (walk-in), offering the capacity to do the test without cut the piece.
• Volumes: From 140 liters to 2.000 liters
• Temperature range: From Room to +50ºC
