Corrosion is a natural process that can destroy or weaken any material and even the surface coatings of the product. The main purpose of the surface coatings is to act as a barrier between the metal and its environment. The process of corrosion will inevitably lead to the degradation of surface coatings. In order to protect surfaces from corrosion, it is important to regularly inspect and maintain them. To make it easy for metal product manufacturers to test the resistance of surface coatings against corrosion, we at Testronix have designed high-quality corrosion test chambers. This high-quality lab testing equipment has been made in accordance with industry standards that include ASTM B117 and JIS Z 2371. This advanced lab testing equipment will let the manufacturers conduct corrosion tests on the materials and assess the quality of their products. Here in this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Testronix corrosion test chamber and how this quality lab testing equipment is helpful in conducting corrosion resistance tests. So, let us get started!

All about Testronix corrosion test chamber

Corrosion is the process of deterioration of a material, usually a metal, due to its reaction with its environment. The most common form of corrosion is rusting, which occurs when iron or steel is exposed to oxygen and moisture. Corrosion can have a major impact on surface coatings, as it can cause the coatings to break down and deteriorate.

The Testronix corrosion test chamber or salt spray chamber is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to test the corrosion resistance properties of the materials when exposed to a salt-laden environment.

When it comes to testing corrosion, the Testronix corrosion test chamber is an industry-leading solution. This chamber works by simulating the conditions that cause corrosion, such as exposure to salt water. It makes it easy for the product manufacturers to ensure that the materials can easily withstand corrosion and can be used accurately. This testing chamber will produce the salt mist when the product manufacturers can place the materials inside it. You can read more about the things that you should know about the Testronix salt spray chamber.

How to perform a salt spray test on the materials with Testronix corrosion chamber?

The Testronix salt spray chamber is one of the high-quality lab testing equipment that will accurately test the corrosion resistance properties of the materials and ensure that high-quality material will be delivered to the customers. To perform the salt spray test with the help of Testronix corrosion chamber, we have listed some easy-to-follow steps mentioned below.

  • To operate this high-quality lab testing instrument, you can start the machine by plugging it into 3-pin 15 amp sockets.

  • Ensure all operational safety notices and prerequisites have adhered to the standards.

  • Turn ON the “Main ON” Rocker Switch from the Control Panel.

  • Connect the M8- PU Pipe within the Air Saturator DM Water Inlet Port and fill the air saturator with DM solution.

  • Visually Examining the Air Saturator, the water level starts increasing from the minimum DM water level.

  • After that, prepare a salt solution to fill the reservoir tank. Now Connect Airline Pipe to the Air inlet Port.

  • Connect external DM Water tank of minimum 8 Feet height (Under Customer’s Scope). For this, connect the M8 PU Pipe with the Salt Solution Inlet Port and automatic Filling of Air saturator tank.

  • Once this can be done, then you can prepare the testing specimen and place it on this lab testing equipment.

When all the above steps will be followed then you can easily commence the test using this high-quality lab testing equipment. You can read more on the purpose of salt spray testing and why you should conduct it. This lab testing equipment is highly beneficial for your metal firm. You can easily read more about the importance of corrosion test chambers in the metal industry.
