A new box-shape corrosion chamber, type SKB 1000 ATR, was put in operation at VZLU in June 2008. Made by Gebr. Liebisch GmbH & Co. KG Labortechnik, this chamber is ranked among best in its category. Microprocessor-controlled, it features a test room of 1,000 dm3, which increases the existing testing capacity in carrying out SS, ASS, CASS salt fog tests, KK condensation and cyclic condensation tests. The chamber makes it possible to conduct other types of tests conforming to national and international standards, as well as regulations and methods as used in particular branches, typical examples being ČSN EN ISO 9227, ISO 6270-2, ASTM B117, ASTM G85, RTCA/DO-160, MIL-STD-810, PV1210, etc.
