Tips for Ensuring Accurate Results from Your Corrosion Test Chamber

Corrosion Test Chamber

Metals are commonly used in various applications such as construction, transportation, and manufacturing due to their desirable mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. However, when exposed to certain environmental conditions, metals can undergo corrosion, which can weaken the material, reduce its lifespan, and increase maintenance costs.

Thus, it is important for metal product manufacturers to conduct corrosion-resistant tests on the metals and ensure the longevity of the materials. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as Salt Spray Chamber - Korrox IV Magnus Series Computerized. This is one of the high-quality laboratory testing equipment that is used to test the corrosion-resistant properties of metals and ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

In this blog, we will discuss a brief about the Presto corrosion test chamber and how this lab testing instrument is useful to test the corrosion-resistant properties of the metals. So, let us get started!

All about Presto Korrox IV Magnus Series Computerized

Testing metals for corrosion resistance involves subjecting the metal to various environmental conditions that may cause corrosion and monitoring the metal's behavior over time. Different tests can be used including salt spray testing that will help the manufacturers in ensuring the accuracy of test results.

This corrosion-resistant test chamber is easy to use and place the samples. Besides this, it has been built with unique design features and can perform salt spray tests in a fast manner. Korrox IV Magnus Series Computerized has an ergonomically pneumatically operated canopy with a protection interlock and has been embedded with a simple approachable salt spray atomizer in a transparent toughened Plexi glass canopy that will be easy to maintain.

Besides this, you will get a large transparent acrylic viewing window for an uninterrupted visual approach to the chamber interior and test material. It has been designed strictly designed as per industrial standards that include ASTM B117, JIS Z 2371, ISO 9227, and various other test standards.  Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.

Useful tips to get accurate testing results for salt spray testing

Salt spray testing is a widely used test method for evaluating the corrosion resistance of metals and coated materials. To get accurate testing results for salt spray testing, here are some useful tips:

  • Follow the test method standards: The most widely used standard for salt spray testing is ASTM B117. It is important to follow the standard procedures and guidelines to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of the test results.  We at Presto have designed accurate salt spray testing instruments to follow the test standards.

  • Prepare samples properly: The test samples should be cleaned and dried thoroughly before testing. Any residual oil, grease, or other contaminants on the surface of the sample can affect the test results.

  • Use a consistent test environment: The test chamber should maintain a consistent temperature, humidity, and salt spray concentration throughout the test. Any variations in the test environment can affect the test results. Thus, you can set air saturator temperature repeatability and chamber temperature to ensure accurate testing results.

  • Record test data accurately: All test data, including the start and end times of the test, the test conditions, and the test results, should be recorded accurately. This data should be used to evaluate the test results and to compare them to previous test results.

Thus, you can easily follow these tips and ensure accuracy in test results. Just give us a call at +91-9210 903903 or email us at to know more information about this testing instrument. Our team of technical experts will consult you regarding all your needs and queries.
