This is the latest and portable environmental chamber that FDM realized for specific customer needs. It’s a next generation device configured with multiple advanced features realized for testing the samples with varying weathering conditions. This small environmental chamber version (40C180V25) is a ‘PID (Proportional Integral Derivative)’ regulation device that can be used for ‘stability’ testing conditions. Alternatively, it can be equipped with programmable controller for cycling test; in this case we can manipulate the temperature and humidity making the testing much more dynamic. The specimen can be easily subjected to multiple environmental parameters with its advanced attributes.

We realized this machine according to the specifications provided by the customer. Also, they required us to realize the machine with smallest possible size, easy to transport to operate in multiple laboratories. This portable environmental chamber is configured for a specific customer who requested us to resolve a particular test condition and transportability. This environmental chamber consists of numerous benefits, which makes it a ‘stand out’ with respect to its ‘attributes’. We have the required skills to help them, and we did it!

This Environmental Chamber Consists of The Following Attributes:

  • Vast weathering range, with temperature ranging from -40°C to +180°C and humidity varying from 30% to 98% rh with a fluctuation range of less than 3.
  • Material used to manufacture this device is of very high quality. The exterior portion is made of ‘white coated galvanized steel’ and the interior is made of ‘AISI 304 stainless steel’.
  • Device is free insulated from CFC and HCFC.
  • Its interior consists of steel grid which are removable and height-adjustable as required.

It is basically a single-shelve environmental chamber, with its interior and exterior dimensions suitable to categorize it as ‘Portable’ as it weighs only 80kgs.

Exterior Dimensions Are [mm]:

  • Width – 444
  • Depth – 695
  • Height – 690

Interior Dimensions Are [mm]:

  • Width – 300
  • Depth – 235
  • Height – 295

With this portable environmental chamber you have much interior space available, it can be subjected to any specimen of volume up to 25 liters, which is quite impressive with respect to its attributes.

Electrical Parameters Configured in Portable environmental chamber:

  • Energy consumption at 37°C is 0.5[kWh/h]
  • Voltage capacity is 220/240V
  • Power Frequency of 50 Hz
  • Nominal Power of 1 kW and Nominal Voltage (Phase) of ‘1-‘
  • Unit Fuse of 16 A

Feature that makes this one of its kind are the safety measure taken into account to meet our customers request, it is immune to every unwanted mishaps that may occur during testing period. Those safety measures consist of:

  • Constant Monitoring Controller: This reduces the chance of any unfortunate events to minimal.
  • High Alarm & Security Feature: In this feature, the audio-visual alarm sets off whenever the temperature becomes too ‘HOT’ for the testing specimen.
  • Security Device with manual reset Class 1(DIN 12880).

To summarize: it is small and portable, can be operated in any given conditions because of its ‘dynamic’ features. In others words, a smart environmental chamber.

Climatic hydraulic press

climatic hydraulic press

Climatic hydraulic press; Climatic module paired with any press

If you have a hydraulic press, and you need to do test at controlled temperatures and humidity, FDM has already the solution for you. We’ve put ourselves to the test once again, designing a unique machine and that allows the coupling with your current press.

The climatic chamber can be coupled and de-coupled to the press in a simple and fast way . Thanks to the installation of the chamber on rails. In this way, it will be enough to pull out the chamber’s axes and slide backwards the climatic structure. The project was born with the necessity of a customer, who was already in possession of a hydraulic press and wondered us if it was possible to create a climate coupled with it.  So we managed to meet the customer’s economic / qualitative needs by creating a custom machine for unique and efficient testing.

 

Main features of climatic hydraulic press are:

Temperature range: -30/+80°C

Temperature changes in time: ±0.1…0.5°C

Max Cooling / Heating Speed: +5/-5 °C/min

 

Other features of climatic hydraulic press:

Temperature and humidity probe are located close the Test sample

RS485 interface port

External elettronic controller with programmer

Controlled Humidity to avoid condensation

External glass door with inner lighting to the climatic

Internal and external structure completely in stainless steel AISI 304

Cable holes both wall sides.

The climatic hydraulic press, can work both with manual and automatic mode through the software already installed on the press with RS485 interface and external electronic controller.

 

Tire stress test chamber

Tire stress test chamber: requirements

During F1 races drivers sumbit cars to curve angles at a crazy speed. In these situations tyres need to grip to asphalt in the most efficient way possible. This efficiency decreases by the consumption of the tyres during the race. To calculate this wear andprevent it, Bridgestone needed a solid automation machine to perform stress test on its F1 tyres.

Tire stress test chamber: requirements

FDM answered by engineering and developing a custom machine with a motion chamber equipped with robotic arms grabbing the tyre samples. Below the other functions:
– Cyclical pressure/stretching of different multi-tyre samples
– Possibility to set Humidity/Temperature inside the motion chamber
– Count of the cycles and calculation of the strain registered on every cycle
– Alarm at the tyre break
– Registration of data during all the stress tests and production of a complete log

Climate chamber for keeping mice

Climate chamber for keeping mice: requirements

Research institutes and bio labs usually need special chambers to test plants or animals growth. But not always their needs encounter the right solution from standard products. A climatic chamber reseller from Germany was asked by a big science laboratory for a special solution: a hugebclimatic chamber for mice safe growth. We care a lot research as we think it’s the future. So FDM answered to this request.

Climate chamber for keeping mice:  solution

FDM proposed a special automatic controlled climatic chamber. This solution was equipped with cages for mice containment, UV lights and controlled environment as well as:
– Night and day cycles simulation
– Programmed Temperature and Humidity
– Removable doors to facilitate researchers operations
– Settable alarms to help controlling medicines effects over time
– Registration of data during all the cycles and production of a complete log
