Climatic and Ozone ChamberCopyright: © MSE
The institute's equipment includes a climatic exposure test chamber with a chamber volume of circa 0.3 m³ and an additional external testing box. The climatic chamber can generate temperatures of -60°C to +180°C and relative air humidity of 10% to 98%. It can be used to test components and lubricants under extreme climatic conditions. MSE also has a climatic exposure ozone test chamber, type 3MR-3R-140, which – in addition to a temperature and humidity controller – is also equipped with a conditioning unit for ozone concentration inside the test chamber. It is used to accelerate the aging of elastomers.
