TWI’s environmental testing capabilities increased

Thu, 13 June, 2019

TWI has purchased a cyclic corrosion cabinet for the environmental testing of materials. The cyclic corrosion cabinet (CCT), manufactured by TQC Sheen, is designed to deliver the precise environmental test conditions demanded by modern industry - from automotive manufacture, to the paint, plastics, packaging, electronics, aerospace, military and offshore industries.     
The CCT cabinet provides a full range of environmental test conditions, including:

  • Conventional salt spray/ salt fog
  • Dwell and ramp functions
  • High humidity, 98% RH, at constant or cyclic temperature
  • Air purge cycles
  • Forced air drying
  • Dry heat – ambient to 70°C

Any combination of these conditions can be selected, programmed in any sequence and for any pre-set time.

CCT cabinets can also be used in single mode as a CASS Cabinet, Conventional Salt Spray/ Salt Fog Cabinet, or a Humidity Cabinet.

The cabinet is also capable of operating performance to the following standards: BS 3900-F12, CCT I, II, IV, DIN 50021, Ford EU B 153-2, GM 9540 P, ISO 7253, JIS K 5622-7, Nissan M0007, Swaat and Mastmaasis Honda 5100Z, Toyota TSH 1555G, Unichem 692 and 741, VDA 624-415, VW-1210-C, ASTM B117

This project is funded by the Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) and the equipment is housed at our facility in Middlesbrough.
