Testing the humidity effects at very different temperature helps the manufacturers to determine the strength and reaction of the components in different and severe environmental conditions. These extreme environmental situations involve high temperature, fluctuating atmospheric conditions and high relative humidity. The effect of such conditions on your material can be tested in labs when the material is subjected to the static state of temperature and humidity for a fixed period of time using a highly accurate humidity chamber.

Relation between Temperature and Relative Humidity

The temperature and humidity are directly proportional to each other. The high temperature of the chamber can lead to high rate of humidity. It means that the air is capable enough to handle more moisture at a given temperature. Relative humidity defines the ratio of the moisture in the air with respect to its strength which it can hold in given temperature. With the rising temperature of the chamber, the percentage of humidity in the chamber will also rise and stable temperature will offer stable humidity.

Humidity Chamber and its components

Different conditioning chambers are designed with sophisticated technology that can create different temperature and humidity inside the cabinet. These chambers ensure less heat loss ratio as they are designed with the high-quality glass wool that ensures perfect insulation inside the chamber. It comprises of heaters & cooling compressors both to maintain the accurate level of humidity in the chamber. They are also known as conditioning chambers and are used in testing laboratories to measure the effect of different atmospheric conditions on the mechanical, chemical and physical properties of the product when they are subjected to the real working environment.

Labtiger, one of the leading manufacturers of testing instruments, offer high-quality and highly effective Humidity Chambers with a temperature and relative humidity setting options that help to analyse the effect of environmental conditions on products. The instrument is designed as per the standard ASTM D1776, ASTM D1776M-15, BS950 Part-1(D65) which helps to assure the accuracy & reliability of test results. It is widely used in a large number of production verticals including rubber industries to determine the crack initiation property or melting properties of rubbers, pharmaceutical industries to analyse the effect of humid environment on medicines & drugs and plastic industries to measure the result of humid conditions and high temperature on the mechanical and physical properties of plastic products.
