FAQs

NextGen Environmental Chambers uses R134a refrigerant, which is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant that has become a popular replacement for the older R-12 refrigerant in automotive air conditioning systems. R134a has a much lower ozone depletion potential than R-12, which makes it a more environmentally friendly option. It is also less flammable than other refrigerants, making it a safer choice for use in air conditioning systems.

R134a refrigerant is commonly used in air conditioning systems for both vehicles and buildings. It has good thermodynamic properties and is able to provide efficient cooling. It also has a lower toxicity level compared to other refrigerants, making it a safer option for use in various applications. However, R134a is a greenhouse gas, which means that it has the potential to contribute to climate change if it is not properly contained and disposed of.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers NG-EC is designed to meet the needs of rubber and plastic manufacturers who require a reliable and efficient way to perform environmental testing. The chamber is equipped with a spacious interior that can accommodate multiple sample racks.

Each NG-EC chamber comes with one sample rack included in the package. However, additional sample racks can be purchased separately depending on the customer's needs. The sample rack is specifically designed to securely hold samples during testing and ensure consistent exposure to the environmental conditions inside the chamber.

The number of samples that can be tested at once depends on the sample size and the chamber size. The NG-EC chamber has a capacity of 100 litres, which allows for the testing of a significant number of samples at once. The chamber's advanced temperature and humidity control systems ensure accurate and stable conditions for each sample, enabling precise and repeatable results.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers NG-EC features a precise and reliable temperature control system that ensures the internal temperature of the chamber is maintained within the desired range. The chamber uses a microprocessor-based PID controller that constantly monitors and adjusts the temperature to within ±0.2°C of the set point.

The temperature control system in the NG-EC works by circulating chilled air through a refrigeration system that uses R134a refrigerant. The refrigeration system is designed to remove heat from the chamber and maintain the temperature at the desired level. The temperature sensor located inside the chamber sends a signal to the controller, which adjusts the amount of refrigerant flowing through the system to maintain the set temperature.

Our chamber also features a fan system that ensures uniform temperature distribution throughout the chamber. The fan circulates the air, ensuring that the temperature is consistent across all sample racks. Moreover, the NG-EC features a safety thermostat that cuts off the power to the heater and compressor if the temperature exceeds the set limit.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers NG-EC has an automatic defrosting function that is designed to remove ice build-up on the evaporator coils. This is necessary to ensure that the unit operates efficiently and maintains consistent temperature control. The defrost cycle is controlled by a microprocessor-based controller that monitors the temperature of the evaporator coils and initiates defrosting when necessary.

The defrosting function is initiated when the controller detects that the evaporator coils have reached a pre-set temperature. When this occurs, the refrigeration cycle is temporarily suspended, and the unit's electric heaters are turned on to melt the ice on the coils. Once the ice has melted, the controller will then turn off the electric heaters and resume the refrigeration cycle. The frequency of defrost cycles is determined by the amount of frost accumulation on the coils, which can be influenced by factors such as humidity levels and the number of door openings.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers come with a defrosting function to ensure that frost accumulation does not affect the accuracy of the testing process. The defrosting function is controlled by an automatic system that senses the amount of ice buildup on the evaporator and initiates the defrost cycle as needed. The system uses a programmed microprocessor-based controller to monitor the chamber's temperature and humidity levels and control the defrost cycle.

During the defrost cycle, the system temporarily stops the cooling and heating functions and activates the defrost heater to melt the ice. The water produced from the defrost cycle is then collected in a drain pan and removed from the chamber. The defrost cycle is timed and varies depending on the amount of ice buildup, typically 30 to 45 minutes.

The automatic defrosting function is designed to minimize the need for manual intervention, reducing the risk of errors and ensuring test results' accuracy. The user can also manually initiate the defrost cycle if necessary. Additionally, the system includes a defrost heater safety limit switch to prevent overheating and ensure safe operation.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers NG-EC features a high-precision temperature measurement system with a resolution of 0.1°C. The temperature measurement system uses a platinum resistance thermometer (PRT). PRTs are a type of temperature sensor that is known for their excellent accuracy and long-term stability.

A microprocessor-based temperature controller controls the temperature measurement system, which continuously monitors and adjusts the temperature inside the chamber to maintain the set temperature within a tight tolerance range. The temperature controller uses feedback from the PRT to adjust the heating and cooling systems to maintain the set temperature.

The NG-EC also features an optional data logger system that can record temperature and humidity data at user-defined intervals. The data logger system uses a high-precision thermistor sensor with a resolution of 0.01°C to provide accurate temperature measurements, which can be downloaded to a computer for analysis.

The NextGen Environmental Chambers NG-EC-100/150 series have a highly precise humidity sensor with a resolution of 0.1%RH. The high resolution of the humidity sensor allows users to make precise adjustments to the humidity levels within the test chamber to achieve the desired testing conditions.

The humidity measurement is performed using a capacitive sensor, which operates based on the principle that the electrical capacitance of the sensor varies as a function of the relative humidity. The sensor's built-in microprocessor uses an algorithm to convert the capacitance measurement to a digital signal, which can be read and displayed on the chamber's control panel.

The NG-EC-100/150 series also features a humidity range of 10% to 98%RH, allowing users to test various products under various humidity conditions. The chamber is designed to provide consistent and uniform humidity distribution throughout the test area, ensuring that all samples are subjected to the same testing conditions.

The insulation material used in the cabinet of this environmental chamber is a critical component that determines its energy efficiency and temperature stability. This product insulates the cabinet with high-quality polyurethane foam that provides excellent thermal insulation properties. Polyurethane foam insulation is widely used in environmental chambers due to its low thermal conductivity, high strength-to-weight ratio, and excellent dimensional stability. The foam insulation is applied to all sides of the cabinet walls, including the doors, to ensure that there are no thermal leaks.

Polyurethane foam insulation has a high R-value, which is a measure of its thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties. The R-value of the insulation used in this product is designed to maintain a consistent temperature inside the chamber even when the temperature outside fluctuates. The insulation also helps reduce energy consumption, as the cooling system does not have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature.
