Reason of Metals Getting Corroded In Humid Environment

Metal that is coated is more prone to corrosion. The major reason for corrosion is humidity in the air. With the increasing moisture content in the air, the more protection is needed for metal. The need to create a machine to test the corrosion resistance called Humidity Testing Chamber arises. It simulates the weathering conditions and judges the response of metals to those conditions.

Humidity Chamber function according to the environmental conditions that are created with controlled temperature and humidity. The chamber is equipped with heaters and fans. As the heater raises the temperature, the fan distributes the heat in a constant way all through the chamber. Uniform heat distribution is crucial to avoid discrepancy in the result. 

Humidity Chamber Manufacturer has designed the machine in such a way that the for humid air generation, there is the placement of atomizer. This atomizer is correlated to the spray nozzle to control the water spray. Due to the high temperature in the chamber, the sprayed water tends to moist the air. Humidity from 65% to 98% can be achieved easily. As the temperature of the heater is reduced, the percentage of humidity also gets reduced. Humidity cannot be controlled but it can be checked with a humidity chamber.

Any product whose raw material gets affected by humidity requires this testing instrument. The industries that require humidity chamber electrical testing India are:

  • Paints and coating- This industry line needs to perform several tests on the raw materials. As paints and coatings work as protective layers for various products. So, this protective layer does not have the ability to bear the severe humid environments, then how will it protect the surface under it.
  • Automotive- It is one of the biggest users of Humidity Testing Chamber. Automotive parts consist of every type of raw materials that include, plastic, metal. Rubber, paint, polymers etc. the assemblers do not need it. Manufacturers of the body parts and spares cannot work properly without it.
  • Paper- it tends to lose its properties if exposed to moisture. So, to check the applicability of the paper for the application and environment, humidity chamber plays an important role.
  • Packaging- This industry uses various forms of packaging materials such as corrugated sheets, polymers, paper, boxes etc. To test how these materials respond to various transportation conditions makes it crucial to install a humidity testing lab. In oversea transportation, it is important to analyse how the consignment packaging will respond to a humid environment.
