Top 5 Tips to Maintain Humidity Chambers Effortlessly

In the manufacturing industries, there are several components present that needs to be tested in high humidity and corrosive environments. This will help the manufacturers and quality analysts to analyze the material cracking, stress formation, and other properties of the material. The Presto humidity chamber is a unique test cabinet that has been designed to create temperature and relative humidity for the material. This will help to detect the change in its physical properties ascertain the actual life of the testing device. This relative humidity chamber has been made in the compilation of various industry standards that make it easy for you to conduct the test.

Here, we are going to highlight a few important tips that will help you to maintain these lab testing instruments with ease. So, let us get started with the brief information about this testing instrument.

Introduction about Presto humidity chamber

The Presto humidity chamber has been provided by digital controls that will relatively provide humidity and temperature settings for the material to be tested. The environment to be conditioned is controlled at a target dew point and then reheated to a specific air temperature. This methodology follows a proven technique that maintaining a constant setpoint and temperature will produce a very constant relative humidity. The system does not distinguish between humidifying and dehumidifying; it is always setting a set point and reheating. If the conditioned air has a higher moisture content than the setpoint, excess moisture condenses out and dehumidifies the control air. Conversely, if the conditioned air has lower moisture content than the setpoint, moisture evaporates and humidifies the control air. The temperature of the water is automatically adjusted by the feedback from a high-grade RH sensor in the controlled space. This testing instrument has been designed as per industry standards like ASTM D1776, ASTM D1776-M15.

There are various applications of humidity chamber that make it best-selling testing equipment for various industries. From the textile industry to the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry, you can easily test all your materials with the help of this amazing laboratory testing equipment.
