Climatological test facilities

Climate and temperature chambers.
The Environmental Competence Centre has a number of climate chambers at its disposal to carry out
low and high temperature tests, as well as a number of combined climate chambers for low
temperatures at high levels of relative humidity.
Climate tests are normally carried out according to specific standards such as MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-
202 and IEC-68.

Salt fog chamber.
Corrosion tests are carried out on products, which will be subjected to see-
and industrial climates. The climate chambers allow reproducible and
quickened corrosion tests to be carried out according to international
specifications. These tests determine corrosion resistance or can help with the
application of corrosion protective measures.
In the salt mist chamber, constant salt sprinkling tests, as well as test with
sprinkle intervals (0-60 min) can be carried out. These tests are performed
according to international specifications, like ASTM-117B, MIL-STD-810 and
202, IEC-68 and DIN-50021. In addition the condensation water test
according to DIN-50017 can be carried out.
