Test chamber for UV aging

Author:QINSUN Released in:2023-05 Click:19

Product introduction

Ultraviolet aging test chamber uses fluorescent ultraviolet light, which is the closest analog to the ultraviolet spectrum in sunlight Light, combined with temperature control, humidity supply and other devices to analog the sun (ultraviolet segment) high temperature, high humidity, condensation, darkness and rain that cause discoloration, brightness, loss of strength, cracking, peeling, powdering, oxidation and other damage to the material. At the same time, due to the synergistic effect between ultraviolet light and moisture, the single light resistance or single moisture resistance of the material is weakened or invalidated, so it is widely used in the evaluation of the weather resistance of materials. The equipment has the best sunlight UV simulation, low operating and maintenance costs, user-friendly, automatiequipment operation, high degree of test cycle automation, good light stability and high reproducibility of test results. Applicable to ASTMG154, GBT16422.3, GBT14522, GBT5170.9, GBT16776 and other standards.

Temperature control

The first-order optical response is not sensitive to temperature changes, but the speed of subsequent second-order responses is closely related to temperature changes. In general, as the temperature increases, the rate of reaction will increase. Therefore, temperature control during the ultraviolet exposure test is very important. to match the maximum temperature encountered in the application. The temperature of the UV process in the equipment is set between 50°C and 70°C, depending on the light level and ambient temperature in the room. The temperature adjustment of the equipment is achieved through a controller with a microcomputer calculation function to control a series of systems such as air heaters and water heaters in the equipment.


As the temperature rises, the destructive power of moisture on the materialalready increasing dramatically. Therefore, temperature control in the humid process is the most basic requirement. In addition, it is necessary to maintain a high temperature environment during the humid process to produce an acceleration effect. Therefore, the temperature in the condensation process is set to an arbitrary point between 40°C and 60°C.

Heating system

1. Titanium alloy high speed U-shaped electric heating tube

2. Temperature control and light are completely independent system

3. The temperature control output power is calculated by microcomputer to achieve high precision and high efficiency in electricity consumption

4. The heating system has the function of preventing overheating:

1) The temperature of the blackboard is controlled by a program controller with color touch screen or a temperature controller with digital buttons. The outputrmogen is calculated by a microcomputer and the PID is self-tuning. standard PT100 blackboard temperature sensor is used for monitoring.

2) The temperature of the water tank is controlled by a Korean color touch screen temperature controller. The water tank is located in the lower part of the box and has a built-in electric water heater. During the test, there is a test part which is the dark condensation process, which requires saturated water vapor at a relatively high temperature to be generated inside the cabinet. When the water vapor encounters a relatively cold sample surface, dew condenses on the sample surface.
