Salt Fog Chambers - Standard and Walk-In

Walk In Salt Fog Chamber 2

Not just for salt fog or salt spray, these multi-purpose (MPF) test chambers are designed to meet ASTM, SAE, and most all other automotive test for accelerated corrosion testing such as:

  • ASTM B117, (Salt Fog)
  • ASTM B368, (CASS)
  • ASTM D1735, (Humidity)
  • ASTM G85 A5, (Modified salt spray (fog) testing annex A5 dilute electrolyte cyclic salt spray (fog) Testing (Prohesion™).
  • Automotive
  • Industrial
  • Military (MIL Std. 810D, Mil-Std-883)
  • Method 509.2
  • Method 1009.5
  • International
  • And more……

KB Engineering offers walk-in salt fog chambers to provide an option for test larger samples. We offer a wide range of sizes, but typical sizes would be 10'(long) x 6' (wide) by 10' (high), 10' X 7' X 10', 10' X 10' X 10'.

Salt Fog Chamber Features:

  • A "show piece" for any lab.
  • Non-corrosive fiberglass construction.
  • 35 gallon solution holding tank.
  • Four sizes: 20, 30, 40 & 90 cubic feet.
  • Transparent cover for easy sample viewing.
  • Low profile design for ease of chamber loading.
  • Instinctive controls for ease of operation.
  • Front access to all chamber components.

Base Cabinet

All plastic chamber construction, this chamber is manufactured of fiberglass using the most advanced techniques available to ensure longevity and strength. The plastic construction of this unit protects the chamber from the corrosive solutions used, in addition to providing a naturally insulated exposure zone for consistent and repetitive testing. The chamber lid is manufactured from transparent polymer based material to allow viewing of the ongoing testing while keeping the corrosive fog in the chamber. The chamber is heated by electric heaters located below the exposure zone under a diffuser plate.

Microprocessor Based Controller (MBC)

The controller for the MPF Series Chambers is a set of microprocessor based temperature controllers. They provide the chamber with simple and accurate operation. An optional cyclic control feature provides the flexibility of a simple cyclic chamber with the ease of use that Auto Technology Company customers have grown accustom to.

Unifog Dispersion Tower

(U.S. Patent Re-25932) Complete with adjustable cone for uniform collection rates, salt fog atomizer nozzle, internal reservoir with cover, pick-up tube and filter assembly. (number dependent on chamber size) For condensing humidity applications, the atomizer nozzle dispenses DI water mist rather than salt.

ATO-Fill System

(New and improved solution feed system) Complete with bubble tower automatic feed system for direct DI water feed into the bubble tower from customer supplied plant DI water. Also includes the Auto Technology Company 35-gallon mixing and storage tank that feeds directly into the internal chamber reservoir for longer unattended testing time. The MPF Chamber is designed to meet most automotive specifications for accelerated corrosion testing including salt fog, humidity, acetic acid, CASS and simple cyclic tests such as ASTM G85 Annex 5.

Cyclic Corrosion Test Chambers:

A cyclic corrosion test chamber that is the industry's most advanced, flexible and robust available, can provide the user a wide array of controlled cycles to meet the wide variety of industry standard specifications.

The Auto Technology Company's test chambers are the standard in every major automobile manufacturer in North America. These chambers represent leading salt corrosion testing innovation and are found in Daimler Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, and Toyota. The OEM tiered supplier base is also well represented in Delphi, Visteon, Siemens, Valeo, Magni, Henkel, and Borg Warner. Many diverse industries also use these cyclic corrosion test chambers to test components and finished products such as, Carrier, Boeing, Kohler, Lennox, Masco, NASA, TRW, Underwriters Laboratories, the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, and the U.S. Post Office.

Cyclic corrosion chambers that are capable of multiple automatic cycles including:

  • Salt Fog.
  • Humidity Fogging.
  • Dry Cycle.
  • Dwell Cycle.
  • Controlled Humidity.
  • Solution Spray.
  • Wet Bottom Relative Humidity.
  • Immersion Cycle.
  • The ability to go from -20C to 90C.
