C&W Cyclic Corrosion Test Chambers (CCT) are designed to deliver the precise environmental test conditions demanded by modern industry. Their reliability, ease of operation and robust construction has led to their use worldwide in all major sectors from automotive manufacture, to the paint, plastics, packaging, electronics, aerospace, military and offshore industries.
Pioneering designs have made C&W the UK leader in the manufacture of accelerated corrosion and environmental test cabinets. With the inclusion of C&W in TQC Sheen in 2019 it is our goal to enhance this leading position and extend the product range with all necessary tools for performing corrosion tests.
Robust and reliable
CCT cabinets, with their clean, functional design are manufactured from high quality materials selected specifically for this application. The construction is corrosion resistant throughout. Specially formulated retardant glass reinforced polyester (GRP) with high chemical and temperature tolerance. The cabinets have a wet or dry seal option and an ergonomically designed control panel. Apex lids are available in a range of composite materials depending on test requirements, and supported by gas springs. Transportation in areas of restricted access is made easier due to the compact design aided by removable lids and base frames.
The robustness and reliability of the C&W Cyclic Corrosion Test Cabinets go hand in hand with a full range of environmental test conditions, optimum operation and precise control.
The C&W 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
- Ambient to 55°C +/- 1 °C.
With its user-friendly programme logic controller, any one or 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 the following: Cyclic Prohesion® Cabinet, CASS Cabinet, Conventional Salt Spray/ Salt Fog Cabinet, Humidity Cabinet.
Effective corrosion testing requires rapid transition between test regimes with minimum fluctuation. In C&W’s CCT cabinets these criteria are assured by many features like a dry/moist air facility and protection against overheating and low water. The sophisticated atomizer ensures even distribution of salt spray and precise collection rates throughout the chamber. To prevent excessive growth of algae the filling and sterilization entry is easily accessible. The CCT cabinets are provided with a fully adjustable water temperature control with digital display, and optionally a low level alarm system is available.
C&W cabinets are designed for ease of operation. All units incorporate a microprocessor controller with the capacity to hold up to 7 programmes with unlimited event entries. Rapid programme selection and the facility to create new programmes to meet specific needs, puts the operator in total control. The Programme run cycle counter has an ‘End of test’ facility. The ability to monitor cycles, events and functions is made possible by the comprehensive package of control and display features. Salt solution flow control is very accurate via a variable speed, heavy duty peristaltic pump and flow meter. This ensures precise collection rates and eliminates atomiser blockage.
All C&W cabinets with their clean functional design are manufactured from high quality materials selected specifically for this application. They are made out of specially formulated fire retardant glass reinforced polyester (GRP) with high chemical and temperature tolerance. The apex lids are formed in a range of composite materials depending on test requirements and supported by gas springs to ensure smooth operation. They have a wet or dry seal option. The construction of the CCT cabinets is corrosion resistant throughout. Transportation of the CCT Cabinets in areas of restricted access is made easier due to the compact design aided by wheels and removable lids.
