Corrosion is a major concern for manufacturers of metal and coating industries. It can lead to premature failure of products, increased costs, and potential safety hazards. In order to reduce the chance of corrosion developing, you need to know if your metal has been galvanized or coated with paint or other protective materials before it goes out the door. The degradation of metals can be caused by contact with their surroundings or exposure to atmospheric conditions. Corrosion causes the metal to rust, corrode, decay, and rot away. Therefore, to avoid corrosion in materials like metals, you should test them effectively.

Manufacturers should test corrosion properties of metals because if they don't it could lead to catastrophic failures resulting in the loss for your business. Thus, you should make use of the Testronix salt spray chamber that would help you to determine the corrosion properties of materials. Manufacturers need to make sure that their materials are not compromised due to corrosion for safety reasons. Corrosive metals can lead to financial losses as your product will not be able to withstand outer atmospheric conditions. Here in this blog post, we are going to discuss why you should test the corrosion of metals and how the Testronix salt spray chamber helps in doing that.

Why you should test the corrosive properties of metals?

Corrosion is the most common form of metal degradation and it can be caused by a variety of factors such as humidity, temperature, and exposure to specific elements. Your company's product may hold up under normal conditions but how will it fare in extreme environments? Therefore, to make sure that your product will withstand the external environmental factors, you should first test its corrosive properties. Testing the corrosion properties of metals is often overlooked in the production process. Corrosion can cause the metal to weaken and break, which can cost companies time and money.

To ease your corrosion testing process, we have come up with Salt Spray Chambers of different sizes to make sure your product can withstand when exposed to a salt-laden environment. This time-tested product has been specifically designed to assess the rust-proof ability of components to withstand corrosion due to atmospheric conditions. It provides complete flexibility in the simulation of real-life weathering conditions. The device is used in industrial testing laboratories for various research and analysis purposes. The instrument is capable of creating very high temperatures for testing and studying the effect on different painted and plated metal substrates.

Purpose of Testronix salt spray chamber

With metals, corrosion can happen in several ways: oxidation, galvanic reaction, or electrochemical reaction. All these methods result in a loss of metal and a release of corrosive substances into the environment. This leads to corrosion that will be one of the most significant product concerns that could damage the reputation of the metal manufacturers. If you are using any type of metal product, it is important to take steps to avoid corrosion from occurring so that you don't have to deal with costly repairs or replacements down the line. Therefore, with the help of the Testronix salt spray chamber, you can reduce the product rejections by testing your manufactured metal products before considering their finished goods. By testing the corrosion properties of metals, you will be confident that you are producing a quality product and avoid having large quantities of wasted materials on hand when they corrode too quickly. The Salt Spray Chamber is particularly useful in quality control laboratories, where they are used for performing comparative testing. The test temperature in the chamber is user adjustable from ambient to +49°C ±1oC and is controlled by a PLC controlled PID.

In the Testronix salt spray chamber, you will get a touch screen installed that makes it a powerful tool that eases the analysis of corrosion resistance for a wide variety of sample types. It also has 8 function keys, a 3M flash memory, and provides a USB host for a USB flash drive. The test specimens can be continuously exposed to the appropriate salt spray volume. The ergonomic position of the touch screen ensures ease of use.
