Salt Spray Chamber-Easy Steps to Start This Testing Instrument

The fog test or salt spray test of materials is considered to be an essential quality test that is used to determine the nature of surface coatings of the materials in a salt-laden environment. Thus, to ease the process of surface testing with the help of the salt spray test, we at Presto have come up with one of the amazing testing instruments known as the salt spray chamberThis lab testing instrument is used to check the resistance of coatings toward the corrosive environment.

This testing equipment will generate an accelerated form of salt-laden environment that will be used to test the specimen against the quality. Here in this article, we are going to provide you with how you can easily start this machine once you bought it from our manufacturing firm. But, before that, let us focus on the use of salt spray chambers in the metal industry. So, let us get started!

How salt spray chamber is useful in checking the corrosion resistance properties of materials?

Metal corrosion testing is critical to ensure if the metal lasts for a long period or not. Ferrous metals will be subjected to a variety of environmental conditions. Thus, you can easily make use of a salt spray chamber to assess the rust-proof ability of materials to withstand corrosion due to atmospheric conditions. Presto salt spray test chamber is considered to be one of the highly useful lab testing equipment that provides complete flexibility in the simulation of real-life weathering conditions.

This testing device will be 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.

The main purpose of using a salt spray testing instrument is to perform comparative testing on the materials. It comes with adjustable test temperatures i.e. +49°C ±1oC and is controlled by a PLC controlled PID. The touch screen installed in the Salt Spray Chamber is a powerful tool that eases the analysis of corrosion resistance for a wide variety of sample types.

Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.

Features of Presto salt spray chamber

One of India's most advanced and adaptable corrosion test chambers is the Presto Salt Spray Chamber. It is used to calculate the corrosion resistance of any metal specimen's surface coating under an inadequate atmospheric state. Korrox III Salt Spray Chamber has excellent features that are deliberately built to offer reliable test results. Below we have listed the features of this lab testing equipment:

  • 7″ TFT LCD color screen
  • 480 x 234 pixels IP 65 complaint
  • Provides USB Host for USB flash drive
  • ARM9 32-bit CPU
  • Supports CF memory card
  • 3M Flash Memory
  • USB 1.1 for high-speed screen data download
  • 256K bytes SRAM
  • 3 sets of COM ports for multiple
  • Supports Ethernet communication protocols
  • 8 function keys

Additional New Innovative Features 

  • The Salt Spray Tester is equipped with Ethernet Technology, which allows the user to connect to other devices utilizing LAN or an internet network. Any computer system or electronic device with an Ethernet adapter or network card can be connected to the network.
  • Experience remote operation and monitoring of HMI functions with an inbuilt VNC server through VNC client apps like Windows, iOS, and Android.
  • The special Locking function reduces the chances of delivering unsynchronized commands during on-site operation by blocking the remote operation feature. Once the Lock function is ON, the VNC server will only allow the user to have remote monitoring but no remote operation.
  • Now one can directly monitor the registered test data using a web page on computer systems, with no need to install any software program.
  • Installed a safety feature termed the Alarm notification system. All logged-in recipients will automatically receive Alarm notification emails on their system in case of alarming conditions and also ensure secure data transfer by supporting the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
  • Take control of your sample timings with 10 Pre-set timers.
  • No language limitations on HMI functions with English and Hindi interchangeable font settings.

With these features, it will be easy for you to conduct the test. We at Presto are considered to be the leading salt spray chamber manufacturers in India and produce versatile corrosion test chambers for different industries so that they can assure high-quality products with ease.
