Corrosive Gases Testbed – Investigations of Corrosion Effects

To prove the resistance of materials and technical products to corrosive gases the corrosive gases testbed infrastructure enables an exact dosage of the corrosive gases with a climate conditioned air volume. The main constituents of the corrosive, atmospheric trace elements are: sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and chlorine gas (CL2). Investigations of corrosion effects on single system components or complete systems could be performed in the lab environment.
