Weice corrosion test chamber

Weice Testing Instrument Company Ltd. has introduced a supply cycle corrosion test chamber that can create four distinct environments: salt spray, air drying, controlled humidity and standard atmosphere.

Any combination of different environments may be programmed to occur sequentially in any order, to form a corrosion cycle that can then be performed automatically or repeated a pre-set number of times, according to the manufacturer. Each environment can also be selected individually. Refrigeration is available as an option.
