You are thinking of buying a climatic chamber or an environmental chamber for your laboratory and you are considering the possibility of choosing a used climatic chamber or a climatic chamber for sale.
In the following article, we will outline the pros and cons of buying a used climate chamber and offer our opinion on the matter.
The Pros of Buying a Used Climatic Chamber
As in any second-hand market, the advantages of buying a used climatic chamber can be summed up in one word: the price.
However, this is not a secondary detail. The climatic chambers are laboratory instruments of the highest precision and their price reflects the value of the technology implemented.
A new climatic chamber costs an average of 10,000 to 15,000 euros but can reach 20,000 with all the accessories. The environmental chambers for extreme tests even reach 50,000 euros.
On the other hand, there are used climatic chambers at prices ranging from 4,500 up to 7,000.
In short, there is a saving of over 50% on the price of the new one and it is, therefore, understandable to choose a climatic chamber for sale if the budget does not allow for the purchase of a new product.
The Cons of Buying a Used Climate Chamber
On the other hand, the cons of buying a used climatic chamber are many. Let's try to summarize them schematically:
- Technology: climatic chambers are technologically advanced tools built to last. Many of the products found on the second-hand market are now dated and are being resold because they are no longer able to carry out many of the tests on the latest generation materials.
- Warranty: not all products found on the second-hand market are guaranteed. As this is in any case an important purchase, the presence or absence of a guarantee should not be underestimated. You risk saving today to lose tomorrow.
- Assistance: when a new climatic chamber is purchased, a direct line is opened with the manufacturer who generally guarantees prompt assistance on the product even after the sale.
- Customization: by purchasing a new climatic chamber it is possible to ask the manufacturer for all the modifications necessary to meet the particular needs of our climatic tests. This is not possible with a used environmental chamber.
All things considered, we would like to recommend the purchase of a new product and evaluate the purchase of a chamber for sale or climatic chamber used only and only if the budget does not allow for alternatives.
