With fears of carbon dioxide causing global warming and diminishing supplies of fossil fuels, a looming energy crisis is affecting all countries. As a consequence, a great deal of world-wide effort is going into the development of alternative energy technologies. At present, wind, hydro and geothermal are becoming well established with more niche roles for tidal and solar. The latter technology has two common forms, firstly solar water heating, and secondly photo voltaic (PV) solar electricity generation.

Some industries need to have a good correlation between the size and the shape characterisation.In the battery industry, the shape and the size of the particles are very important for the electrical properties of the final product. The particle’s morphology can influence their behaviour, their conduction properties, their mechanical resistance, their life time…

The temperature test system was developed to test lithium-ion cells. Pressure surges caused by a malfunction are drawn off via a reversible pressure-release flap. Nitrogen inertisation serves to reduce the oxygen concentration to ≤ 3 %. This is used for tests which could produce flammable or explosive gas and air or steam and air mixtures.

Dust tests are mainly performed to test functioning of components under extreme environmental conditions. Various standards specify e.g. the test duration and the composition of dust used. The dust is filled in the funnel below the test space. The formation of dust within the test space is effected by compressed air injection through four special nozzles. The dust is blown and swirled in upper test space by intensive air movement.

UV light, temperature, humidity have a strong influence on the quality of pharmaceutical products. The preparate can lose its efficacy through inaccurate storage conditions. In the pharmaceutical industry, API and medicines are tested under long-term conditions to determine shelf life.

A large axial fan sucks the air out of the easy-to-clean test space made of stainless steel. In an air duct behind the rear test space wall, this circulating air then passes through the electrical heater (heating) and the fin-type heat exchanger (cooling). After passing the humidification bath (aerosol-free humidification/dehumidification) the circulating air re-enters the test space via special air baffle plates, ensuring optimum temperature and humidity constancies (in time).

Due to its overall test space volume of 2500 litres and a test space floor that can bear the weight of a person the WK-2500 can be loaded with solar panels in their original size of a length of up to 1,8 m. Due to the vertical routing of the air through the homogenously distributed air on the test space floor (perforated floor) an even temperatureconditioning of the panels is achieved. The high-capacity steam humidification system ensures fast adjustment of the relative humidity after the freezing phase.
