Ascott Salt Spray and Corrosion Test Chambers


A corrosion test, also referred to as a salt spray test, is a common test in the automotive, aviation, coating, electronics, steel and aluminum industries. These tests can be used to study whether products are corrosion resistant..

The Ascott salt spray chambers and corrosion test systems offer many possibilities for corrosion testing and deliver accurate and reliable test results. Ascott offers a wide range of corrosion test systems. Ascott has solutions for all applications, ranging from systems for standard salt spray tests (NSS/ASS/CASS) to systems for cyclic corrosion tests, from 120 litres to 2600 litres, suitable for coated test panels or heavy test pieces up to 200 kg.
All Ascott systems feature a user-friendly touch panel controller. This controller enables easy programming, controlling and monitoring of the corrosion chambers. Remote communication with the chamber by means of a computer is also possible.
