What is a constant climate chamber?
Climate chambers, also known as humidity cabinets, create the required conditions for the stability testing of various materials. A climate chamber can be used to simulate various temperature and humidity conditions. Lighting simulation can be very important as well for some tests.
There are roughly two types of climate chambers: constant and dynamic climate chambers. Constant climate chambers are often employed for long-term stability tests and can be used to maintain temperature and humidity at defined levels. On the other hand, dynamic climate chambers can be used to run specific testing programs in which temperature and humidity are modified automatically at set times.
Constant climate chambers are used in industrial and research settings. Such applications include stress-testing of samples, materials tests, aging tests, long-term stability tests, and use as a specific storage facility.
