Fogging Tester - EB-03

ISO 6452 and ASTM D5393

Fogging tester is used to determine the windscreen fogging according to ISO, DIN, ASTM and other automotive standards. The equipment has a compact design with the heating bath and cooling bath integrated in one casing. For cooling the water bath, the instrument is normally connected to tap water of max 18 °C. If the tap water is too warm, a model EB 03C can be supplied with a built in cooling system with Peltier elements.

Features for the Fogging Tester - EB-03

  • The equipment consists of a heating bath and a water bath, built as one unit.
  • Meets the requirements for fogging tests, according to ISO 6452 and ASTM D5393 and other automotive standards
  • The baths are made of stainless steel and the casing of painted steel. The paint is a powder paint.
  • The water cooling can be replaced by an electrical cooling system with Peltier elements.(EB 03C)
  • Temperature sensor in the cooling water return.

Fogging Tester - FT-F1

ISO 6452, DIN 75201, SAE J1756, QB/T 2728, BS EN 14288, PV 3920, PV 3015, ES-X83231, NES M0161, D45 1727, GM 9305P, TSM 0503G

Fogging Tester - FT-F1 is professionally applicable to the fogging characteristics evaluation of volatile constituents of decorating materials used in cars and aircrafts, e.g. plastic articles, polyurethane, textiles, leather, adhesives, non-woven and thermal forming elastomers at high temperature conditions. It also could be used for the fogging phenomenon test of front high intensity discharge (HID) lamps of cars.

Principle

The preconditioned specimen is heated and evaporates in the beaker; the volatile constituents condense on the glass plate or aluminum foil treated in cooling chamber. Take off the glass plate or aluminum foil when the condensation process is finished. The fogging characteristics could be obtained by measuring condensed constituent weight and fogging value on the glass plate or aluminum foil and comparing with the data before condensation process.

Three Test Methods

  • Gloss Method: - the specimen is heated in the beaker and its volatile constituents are condensed on the cooling glass plate. The fogging value could be obtained by calculating and comparing the gloss values occurred before and after condensation process.
  • Fogging Method: - the specimen is heated in the beaker and its volatile constituents are condensed on the cooling glass plate. The fogging value of the specimen could be obtained by calculating and comparing the fogging values occurred before and after condensation process.
  • Weighing Method: - the specimen is heated in the beaker and its volatile constituents are condensed on the cooling aluminum foil. The fogging value---the weight of condensed constituents could be obtained by analyzing the weight changes of aluminum foil occurred before and after condensation process.

Instrument Structure

The instrument mainly consists of constant high-temperature bath, constant low-temperature bath, cooling plate, beaker, glass plate, meter, sample cutter and other accessories, through which it can perform the processes of sampling, heating, condensation and test.

Operation Process

Prepare specimens-switch on high and low temperature baths-clean beakers and glass plates--place specimens-place glass plate or aluminum foil-place cooling chamber-perform test for a specified period of time-take off glass plate or aluminum foil and place certain time-measure the gloss value, fogging value of glass plate or weight value of aluminum foil-compare the data and obtain test results.

Features

  • Wide range and high precision of temperature control device to support the combinations of non-standard test conditions.
  • 6 test stations can perform specimen test or blank test simultaneously.
  • This instrument ensures accurate and reliable test data through stable running condition.


Applications

This instrument is applicable to the determination of:

Basic Applications

  • Decorating Articles of Cars - Test the volatility of car decorating articles, e.g. instrument boards, knobs, seat cushions, floor leather and ceiling materials at high temperature.
