Large equipment

Short Description

Climatic test chamber with 2 chambers for climate and environmental simulation and differential climate stress. The climatic test chamber is suitable for use in research, development and for testing of building materials and structures. Desired different climates are set in one or both usable chambers and optionally a construction element can be installed between the two chambers and the temperature and humidity dependent properties such as: Climatic stress, u-value, vapor diffusion and sorption can be determined.

The chambers can be additionally equipped with sensors and other equipment such as light through special openings.
The field of application is mainly the determination of material properties of innovative building materials and constructions, the observation of biological processes and the establishment of standard climatic conditions. The device can be programmed and climate data recorded via an interface.
