 Role of salt spray testing in automotive industry

The automotive industry has been covered with metal components that will help in the smooth functioning of the machine. Thus, testing the products against corrosion is an important aspect of quality control. By evaluating the durability of the materials against corrosion, manufacturers can easily ensure accuracy by simulating them in a highly corrosive saline solution.

This can be done with the help of salt spray testing. Different metal coatings will be tested by conducting salt spray tests on the materials.

Thus, salt spray testing aids in ensuring that automobiles can withstand challenging weather conditions like heavy rainfalls or snowstorms without compromising safety or structural integrity. Furthermore, this rigorous evaluation method assists automakers in adhering to stringent industry standards and regulations while continuously improving product reliability and longevity.

 Now, let us discuss a brief about Presto salt spray chamber Korrox IV.  

All about Presto salt spray chamber Korrox IV Magnus Series Computerized

The Presto Salt Spray Chamber - Korrox IV Magnus Series Computerized is one of the widely used corrosion testing instruments that can accurately test the corrosion resistance of materials with its highly advanced features. This high-quality lab testing equipment is equipped with advanced computerized technology, making it exceptionally user-friendly and efficient. It provides a comprehensive range of features for conducting salt spray tests, ensuring precise and customizable testing parameters.

Featuring an HMI-based touchscreen interface, it provides user-friendly accessibility. Its inbuilt temperature settings, coupled with a Salt Spray Test mode, allow users to tailor parameters to match the specific test samples. Equipped with a corrosion-resistant PT-100 sensor and solid-state digital programmable temperature controller, this system ensures precise and reliable results. Users can easily program test profiles and adjust PID settings, air saturator configurations, test temperature, and air purge times.

The current test status is conveniently displayed, while its robust construction with a triple-wall fibre-reinforced body ensures durability. Sample placement within the test chamber is made effortless and for the 250 Ltr. model, a pneumatically operated canopy is available. To top it off, an air purge after the test promotes fog settlement, further enhancing the system's efficiency.

The quality of salt used in a salt spray chamber is extremely important. Salt spray chambers are designed to test the corrosion resistance of materials, so it is critical that the salt used in these chambers is of the highest quality. Otherwise, the results of the tests will be inaccurate and could lead to faulty conclusions about the material being tested.
