VOC emission test chambers EK 1000

Emission test chambers for the targeted determination of emissions

The EK1000 VOC emission test chamber, developed as a joint venture with Olfasense, enables the determination of emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions. It fully complies with the requirements of ISO 12219-4 and VDA 276.

It also meets all requirements of the manufacturers' standards GS97014-3 (BMW method), PN 780 (Porsche method), VCS 1027, 2769 (Volvo method) and PV 3942 (Volkswagen method).

Further, detailed information about this test chamber is available from our partner Olfasense at VOC emission test chambers EK 1000

Standard basic equipment of the emission test chambers

  • Flushing air function
  • Compressed-air supply
  • Humidity and mass flow process control at the chamber inlet
  • Process-monitoring sensors (temperature and humidity in the chamber)
  • Heated sampling port, 4 ports
  • Interfaces: USB, RS232, RS422, RS485 (e.g. for a FID data connection)
  • Refillable container for laboratory water
  • Adjustable fan speed
  • Sampling connections on the right (left possible on request)
  • Capacitive multi-touch display in the front panel with function keys for the main system functions
  • Easy-to-maintain capacitive humidity measuring system (for CS)
  • USB stick connection for data storage
  • Ethernet interface
  • 2 digital outputs to the customer-provided test specimen controls

CTS emission test chambers – your advantages
