Corrosion of Cast Aluminium Alloys

The apparatus consists of a base supporting one or two heat-transfer corrosion cells. Cells are rated for a working pressure up to 40 psi and working temperature up to 160 °C. An electronic timer permits to set the test duration while an electronic thermostat is used to control the temperature.

  • Enamel finished benchtop steel base.
  • Safety screen surrounding the cell(s).
  • Heat transfer corrosion cell composed by a Pyrex-glass cell with stainless steel top and bottom plates.
  • Stainless steel heat transfer bar. 950 W coaxial heater piloted through a solid state relay.
  • Stainless steel manifold mounted on the top plate and equipped with purge valve, pressure relief valve and gage.
  • Filling nozzle with cap on the top plate.
  • Four stainless steel rods for assembly.
  • Electronic thermoregulator with PID action and built-in digital display. Probe: type K thermocouple. In the twin-unit, an independent thermostat for each position is adopted.
  • Working range: from ambient to 160°C.
  • Safety device against overheating.
  • Electronic timer: it is possible to preset the test duration. When the preset time is elapsed, the heater is automatically turned off. In the twin-unit, an independent timer for each position is adopted.
  • English written user manual.
  • For 220 V/50 Hz connections. Power consumption: 2200 W (twin unit) and 1100 W (single unit).
  • Dimensions (l x w x h): 800 x 350 x 850h mm (twin unit) and 450 x 350 x 850h mm (single unit).
  • CE marked.
