Product Overview

ACS Dry Corrosion chamber incorporates the new approach to corrosion diagnostics (DCTCTM) which has overcome the traditional concept of “salt spray chambers”.

Extremely reliable, the chamber allows to study the specimens undergoing incisive stress such as “scab” and “filiform” corrosion. are completely made of plastic anti-corrosion materials ensuring endurance and perfect seal over time.

All the models are equipped with a PLC-based control system. ACS powerful remote control software, WinKratosTM, is available as option both for single chamber and multichamber (no. 16 max) management.

Customised

ACS has an extensive experience in the design and production of special chambers for corrosion testing, mainly for the automotive industry. The advancement of corrosion test applications in the automotive field has led to the launch of new special testing benches, in which alternate exposure conditions cause more severe effects on the products under evaluation.

Indeed, there are other conditions than just a salty atmosphere at play in the real-life use of vehicles, and these increase and worsen the effects of salt corrosion. Whole vehicles or single components can be subjected to an alternation of high and low temperatures, wet and dry conditions, and direct salt solution washing (i.e. splash test, salt rain) within a complete cycling test lasting many weeks.

Control System

WinKratos Logo

WinKratos is the software developed by ANGELANTONI Industrie S.p.A. for the monitoring and supervision of ATT climatic chambers through a PC (at customer care or on request), running under Windows (XP/VISTA/7 Professional version or higher).

Through WinKratos it is possible to create test profiles (programs), launch or interrupt the execution of a test in “manual” or “program” mode, display data in table or graphic form, and generate a report showing test results.

The software is designed to control not only single chambers but a whole test lab. It can then later be “scaled” and updated, if new machines are added to existing ones, with minimal impact in terms of time and resources.
