Size ranges of MK series

Environmental simulation chamber for cyclical temperature

The BINDER environmental simulation chamber of the MK series is suitable for heat or cold testing between -40 °C and 180 °C (-40 °F and 356 °F). The APT.line™ preheating chamber technology uniquely simulates a natural environment. For cyclical temperature testing, this environmental simulation chamber is a smart alternative to complex individual solutions.
