Salt Spray Testing Lab

Salt Spray Testing Lab

Salt spray testing is a strategy for checking the erosion opposition of coatings and materials used to fabricate items like clasp. During salt shower testing, a sped up destructive assault is delivered to all the more likely foresee how well the covering secures the metal.

We conduct salt spray testing in our laboratories to determine the strength & sturdiness of the anti-corrosive film that is applied over the metallic parts of the vehicle. In the salt shower test cupboard painted/covered boards, vehicle parts i.e. Electro-plated, Painted, and Anodized and so on are presented to a fog of salt over a time of test length. Soaked air delivered by showering basic salt arrangement into an encased bureau makes moist climate up to 98%. The articles being situated for this sped up consumption test so that they are presented to the hot fog created in the chamber, through the controlled air and fluid spouts. The instrument is reasonable for testing according to IS/BS/ASTM norms. Testing is done at 35 deg penny or then again even up to 50 deg penny.

Salt testing can take many forms, including salt atmosphere, corrosion, salt fog, and Salt Spray Testing, and so on. The goal of determining the effects of salt on a product is shared by all of these variations. Salt can have a negative impact on the physical, electrical, and optical device being tested.

The most severe salt effects occur near coasts. Other areas do not have a high salt content, but they are still exposed. Because of the differences in salt content, different Salt Spray Testing Labs objectives exist. Some standards may require a visual inspection for corrosion or pitting. Other standards assess the product's ability to prevent clogging or buildup.

Salt spray testing laboratories will have a chamber that will not be affected by the salt atmosphere's corrosiveness. Nozzles and venting will be installed in the chambers. Distilled water and sodium chloride will be used in common salt solutions. To check for physical damage or corrosion, KC India Labs has visual inspection testing and measurement tools.

It is nearly impossible to avoid salt exposure. It can be found in the atmosphere, on the ground, in lakes, and in rivers. Near the ocean and sea, the salt content is highest. Salt spray testing should be required for product manufacturers who intend to use their components or devices in any of these areas. Indeed, Salt Testing Lab is used in many military testing qualifications or requirements specifications.

Examples of Salt Spray Standards Performed at KC India Laboratory

A military specification that includes salt spray testing is MIL-DTL-83526 which is a fiber optic testing specification. When exposed to salt, the product should not corrode or show penetration. The product should also conform to insertion loss testing requirements. Salt spray testing can also be done in conjunction with other tests to determine reliability. ASTM D5894 for example exposes products to salt fog per ASTM B117 for one week.

KC India has the capability to conduct salt spray testing to many different devices and components used in the military, telecom or industrials fields applying test methods defined in ASTM B 117, MIL-STD-202 method 101, TIA-364-26, SAE J2334, ATPD-2404B, ISO 9227 as well as other standard industry methods.
