SSC series corrosion test cabinets in line with VDA

VDA chambers for extensive corrosion testing

This corrosion test cabinet has been specially developed for carrying out alternating corrosion tests to meet standards such as VDA 233-102 or similar. This allows cyclic corrosion tests to be carried out under various alternating stresses, including cold storage. Corrosion tests are mainly carried out in the automotive, steel and aluminium industries, e.g. to test materials or coatings under real conditions for their corrosion resistance or service life when exposed to salty air and high or fluctuating humidity and temperature changes.

CTS corrosion test cabinets

The special feature of the CTS corrosion test chamber is the use of a stainless steel slide-in container with a corrosion-resistant internal coating. This coating has a high abrasion resistance and can be repaired easily and quickly in the case of damage. The design with a slide-in container also has the great advantage that the components required to control the temperature are not exposed to the salty, corrosive atmosphere.

Test space volume:

approx. 1600 litres

Humidity range:

10 - 95% r.h.

Temperature ranges:

from -15°C to +50°C for temperature tests
from +10°C to +50°C for climatic tests
