The CLIMPAQ glass test chambers are the only test chambers on the market which allows for both sensory and chemical characterisation. CLIMPAQ ventilated test chambers come in 2 sizes, 50L and 225L to support testing of materials in various sizes. The design is optimised for testing material/specimen emission of pollutants under realistic conditions similar to their everyday use in buildings. The chambers can be operated according to ISO 16000 and EN717-1 standards.
Test materials under realistic conditions
CLIMPAQ ventilated test chambers comes in 2 sizes, 50L and 225L to support testing of materials in various sizes. The CLIMPAQ glass test chambers are unique as they allows for both sensory and chemical characterisation. If used in combination with external air supply it is possible to regulate air temperature, humidity, air velocity and vapour pressure on the compounds and test materials.
This offers an opportunity to test materials/specimens under realistic conditions to their use in buildings.
Used in research since 1993
The NORDTEST method NT Build 482 describes the use of the CLIMPAQ chamber for investigating emissions of pollutants from construction materials. CLIMPAQs have been used in research since 1993 to test emissions of pollutants within a variety of conditions. In literature the chambers have been extensively used for volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions in building materials for both chemical and sensory evaluation.
Provides a stable testing condition
A CLIMPAQ chamber provides very low background concentrations and stable testing conditions as the chamber materials have been carefully selected due to their low odour emission. The chambers are also designed to allow dismantlement and easy cleaning.
The Dilution System
The CLIMPAQ can be equipped with a dilution system used for sensory assessment of the polluted air at different concentrations. The Dilution System allows for the concentration of the polluted air to be adjusted by diluting the air exhausted from the chamber with unpolluted supply air. The degree of unpolluted air can be adjusted by an orifice system.
