Salt Spray Test Chambers
Ascott salt spray test chambers are offered in two model ranges: Standard & Premium.
Standard models meet the requirements of basic, continuous salt spray tests conducted at a single temperature only, such as ASTM B117 and similar international test standards, and may be used with pH neutral salt solutions (NSS) or those acidified by the addition of Acetic Acid (ASS) or Cupric Acid (CASS).
Premium models can perform the same basic salt spray test, but in addition are equipped with extra features which enable them to undertake “modified” tests such as those defined in ASTM G85. Here conventional salt spray is often combined with one other climate, in a two-part cycle, to accelerate the test. For example: salt spray and condensation humidity (SWAAT) or salt spray and drying (PROHESION) or salt spray and SO2 testing.
Cyclic Corrosion Test Chambers
Ascott CCT Chambers are designed to be flexible enough to comply with as many different CCT specifications as possible. As standard they come with the ability to create 4 distinct climates:
- Salt spray
- Condensation humidity (wetting)
- Air drying
- Controlled humidity
- which may be programmed to occur in any sequence and be repeated automatically. By choosing from a wide range of optional accessories, these climates may be added to as required to further extend the number of climates and conditions that can be created.
