Noxious Gas Test

To prove the resistance of the technical products to corrosive gases, Weiss Technik developed the corrosion test chambers cabinets series BSB. The BSB enables an exact dosage of the corrosive gases with a climate conditioned air volume. The main constituents of the corrosive, atmospheric trace elements are: sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and chlorine gas (CL2). The basic unit consists of a test system of series Klima 3000 with 340, 600 and 1000 liters.  
The Endurance® Series from Weiss Technik—the Fast Rate Temperature & Humidity chamber that stands alone. Designed and engineered to give you lasting value, performance and reliability for all your climate testing applications. The intelligent engineered test space design allows for maximum airflow coverage and accurate gradients. Many popular sizes available that allow you to choose the chamber that best fits your needs, while the mobile design allows for greater flexibility. Choose Ramp Rates of 3.0 C/min, 5.0 C/min, 10 C/min, and 15 C/min.
UV light in sunlight and diffuse sky radiation is especially important. It can cause alterations in the surface of materials, which – accelerated by other climate factors, such as temperature and humidity – lead to the typical symptoms of aging. Staggered simulations of natural weathering in devices requires a restriction of the number of climate values or their cyclic alterations. The Global-UV test unit simulates the most important climate factors which are relevant for aging. In other test procedures, too much attention is paid to the simulation of the entire global radiation and the simulation of other important climate factors is neglected. However, it is also important that temperature conditioning and humidification are controlled in a reproducible manner and that the air is humidified without aerosols. Moreover, any uncontrolled overheating on account of the radiant heat of the lamps has to be prevented. Test procedures according to DIN EN ISO 4892-2 prescribe e. g. the simulation of the overall range of global radiation, the disadvantage of which is that the influencing factors of specimen temperature and humidity or their cyclic alterations can only be controlled very vaguely. In test procedures with fluorescent lamps according to DIN EN ISO 4892-3 only the simulation of the photochemically effective spectral range ≤400 nm (UV-A and UV-B radiation) is prescribed. This means we dispense with radiation heating of the specimens but gain the possibility of climate conditioning the specimens in the entire natural temperature and humidity range in a precise and reproducible manner. Within the UV-Global test unit, radiation is effected with special fluorescent lamps in the wavelength range from 290 nm to 450 nm.
High-Low Temperature and Temperature/Humidity Test Chambers. Custom sizes and configurations available.
The Climate-Alternating-Corrosion Test Chamber type SC 1000/15-60 IU meets the requirements of standard DIN 50 021/DIN EN ISO 9227 and allows the performance of corrosion alternating tests according to VDA Test 621-415 B with freezing ("VDA New").
Solar test chamber. See features below.
In addition to the salt spray test chambers of the SC/KWT series, Weiss Technik also offers walk-in salt spray test chambers that allow for the testing of the corrosion behavior of large components.
The SC/UKWT 1000 is a performance salt fog and condensed water test chamber. The chamber has a climate extension that allows for cycles with controlled humidity and drying/ventilation as well as combination alternating tests with cycles.
The SolarClimatic Series instruments are state-of-the-art test units for simulating temperature and climatic indoor and outdoor conditions with global irradiation. Influencing parameters such as global irradiation, temperature, and humidity they can be individually programmed in user configurable programs. The test chamber design of the units offers an economic alternative to large solar simulation equipment such as Walk In or Drive In Chambers.
Weiss Technik offers test systems for testing photovoltaic modules according to the standards IEC 61215 und IEC 61646. We provide also the suitable test chamber for temperature shock cycling tests, humidity freezing tests and damp heat tests.

The TS-120 test chamber consists of two independently controlled chambers, one that is hot and one that is cold. The temperature shock between hot and cold is achieved thanks to the rapid transfer of the specimens on the lift and the subsequent exposure to a wide range of temperatures.

 

The TS-60 test chamber is made of two independently controlled chambers. One chamber is hot and the other one is cold. The temperature shock between hot and cold is created with the rapid transfer of the specimens on the lift and the subsequent exposure to a wide range of temperatures.

 
The integral welded floors provide proper drainage of water/fluids. The unit's one-piece custom construction makes the chambers very easy to install. Larger units can be constructed on site.
The Xceed Custom Reach-In Series is the environmental test chamber from Weiss Technik that gives unlimited options. Designed, engineered, and built to your specifications the Xceed Series offers flexible temperature and humidity ranges, sizes that meet your exact testing requirement and available options that provide unmatched product testing applications.
