Everything you need to consider before buying a constant climate chamberFebruary 2018
New Buyer's Guide spells it out
There are so many constant climate chambers to choose from. But are they all as good as each other? You know you can rely on all of the BINDER chambers at least. But what do you need to consider before buying a constant climate chamber? How does the technical equipment differ? There may be a lot of questions that spring to mind, but with the new BINDER Buyer's Guide for constant climate chambers you can find the answers you are looking for in no time.
The guide provides the user with a detailed overview of the most important features and functions that are essential when buying a unit of this kind. After all, the more accurate your tests are, the more useful the laboratory results are going to be. The most important aspect of all is that the constant climate chamber simulates a climate with 100% accuracy. The humidity and temperature can only differ very slightly from the reference values, and the climate has to be identical at all points in the chamber interior – even when it is loaded up. The water supply and drainage facility has to be correct and there needs to be a water treatment system in place in case the quality of the tap water is insufficient. For photostability tests, the light sources, illuminance levels, and sensor types are of crucial importance.
Plus, as the name suggests, smooth continuous operation must be guaranteed for constant climate chambers. Finally, the user needs to check that the unit of their choosing can be programmed with ease and used to document research work in great detail. The new Buyer's Guide covers these six criteria to take into account when buying a constant climate chamber.
