ozone aging test chamber

Ozone Ageing Tester | Ozone Climate Simulator China Manufacturer

Ozone Aging Test Chamber is climatic testing equipment. This Test Chamber is used for determining the crack resistance of vulcanized or thermoplastic rubbers subjected to dynamic or static tensile strength exposed at an artificial constant temperature to an atmosphere containing a given concentration of ozone according to relevant specifications.

This ozone test chamber is equipped with a metal rack with a revolving function inside the cabinet. The test sample is clamped firmly and stretched dynamically or statically in an environment filled with the ozone according to the stipulation of the referenced standard. The test sample is checked for cracks.

As early as 1885, it was found that strained rubber is liable to crack during aging. People used to believe that it results from sunniness. But later, they have found the same cracking also occurs on rubber products free of sunlight. In the end, after being analyzed, people solved the puzzle that the ozone in the air leads to the cracking of rubber which is not exposed to the sunlight.

Although ozone accounts for little in the air, it is the core reason for material cracking in our life. With the extensive development of rubber products, more and more industries have been attaching importance to critical factors of rubber deterioration. It has significant meaning to extend the service life of finished products. The ozone test chamber is an indispensable rubber testing machine to help in researching and developing countermeasures to cracking.

3 Test Patterns: Static Test & Continuous Dynamic Test & Intermittent Dynamic Test

Static Test

  • After the test sample is stretched by 20% or according to the specified ratio, then put into the ozone test chamber, the test sample is exposed to an atmosphere filled with ozone gas at the prescribed concentration for the specified time. When the time is reached, a magnifying glass is used to observe whether the test piece is cracked.

Continuous Dynamic Test

  • A. The test sample fixed on the rack is circularly stretched between zero and 10%, and the stretch frequency is 0.5 Hz, lasting for 72 hours. The operator checks whether the test sample is cracked.
  • B. The test sample mounted on the rack is circularly stretched between one or more specified stretch ratios. The stretching frequency is 0.5 Hz. The specimen’s surface is checked for cracks at specific intervals.

Intermittent Dynamic Test

  • The specimen is stretched circularly at a frequency of 0.5 Hz from zero to the maximum tension within a specified time. The test sample is kept at the maximum elongation and exposed to the same ozone environment. If necessary, repeatedly and alternately conducting the dynamic and static tests are available.
