Salt Spray Chamber – Korrox III
Salt spray chamber is widely used in different industries for testing of metals. It tests the resistance of the surface coating against the corrosion. It simulates a weather condition that initiates corrosion in normal working condition. The conditions inside the chamber are accelerated, which is why the behaviour of the specimen can be assessed in a short span of time.
Rust testing Korrox III Model is the advanced version of the salt spray tester and is loaded with many features that simplifies the testing. It comes with glass wool insulation to maintain the temperature inside the chamber intact. It comes with an external reservoir tank to ensure the non-stop operation of the machines. It has a tower style atomiser with baffle top for the uniform fog distribution inside the chamber. It is always advised to keep the salt fog test chamber in the ideal laboratory conditions for the best results. Apart from that while performing the salt mist corrosion test, the sample should not be placed too close to the walls. Otherwise, it would give uneven observations. It comes with a touch screen for operation and communication ports for data logging and transferring.
Salt spray chamber has become an important machine in comparative analysis. To perform the test, the specimen are inserted in the salt laden fog for certain number of hours. The number of hours can be referred from testing standards or internal standards setup by the industry. The components can be tested before and after treatment with coating. This machine helps in analyzing improvement in performance of the specimen after coating is applied. The fog created by the atomizer has upto 5% of NaCl which is much more than sea water composition. For testing of components to be used at marine atmosphere, this can be considered as the best tool.
Apart from sea salt spray test to analyse the performance of the components, it is used for highlighting the defects of the components. Defects like chipping and cracks speed up the corrosion process thus can lead to the early failure of the product.
Apart from Korrox III models, presto offers few more models of salt spray chamber that are designed for the different requirements of the different industries.
