If you're in charge of product quality in the metal product manufacturing firm then, you're probably concerned about metal corrosiveness, which might result in product damage. As a result, it's important that you evaluate metals' corrosion resistance qualities of surface coatings and plating. Testronix has developed a salt spray chamber Stainless Steel (Digital), which is one of the most precise testing equipment for determining metal corrosion resistance.

This authorized fog spray chamber has been created to determine a component's rust-proof ability to survive corrosion caused by atmospheric conditions. Thus, you will be able to examine the corrosion resistance qualities of metals with this lab testing equipment. Here in this blog, we will discuss some easy-to-follow steps that help you to perfectly operate this lab testing equipment.

Purpose of Testronix salt spray chamber SS 

The Salt Spray Chamber- stainless steel (digital) is very beneficial in quality control laboratories, where it is utilized for comparison testing. A PLC-controlled PID controls the test temperature in the chamber, which may be adjusted from ambient to +35°C.

The touch screen in this simulation salt spray chamber is a useful instrument for determining corrosion resistance for a wide range of sample types. The touch screen has a unique zero corrosion PT 100 sensor. It also has 8 function keys, 3MB of flash memory, and a USB host for a USB flash drive. The test specimens can be subjected to the required salt spray volume on a continual basis. The touch screen's ergonomic placement provides simplicity of use.

Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.

Now, let us discuss the working of this lab testing equipment.

Working of Testronix salt spray chamber stainless steel (Digital)

To effectively use this testing instrument for testing the corrosion-resistant properties of materials, you can follow the below-mentioned steps.

  • Start the machine by plugging in the mains socket of the machine into a 3 pin 15 amp socket.
  • After that, you need to fill the air saturator with a DM solution.
  • Prepare the salt solution to fill the reservoir tank.
  • Prepare and place the testing specimen in this testing instrument. Make sure that the samples are placed in such a manner that they do not contact each other or any other metallic material.

Once you follow all the above-mentioned steps, then you can easily commence the test. The specimen placed inside the chamber will be subjected to a salt environment, or different temperatures to test the resistance of the metal to corrosion.
