BGD 862 Big Xenon Weathering Test Chamber


BGD 862 is a multi-function big xenon light accelerated weathering testers which is equipped with one piece high power (6.5KW)water-cooling xenon lamp, its exposure area arrive 6,500cm2


Powerful functions and reliable test results

◆ Meet with all international standards of xenon test.

◆ Equipped with ATLAS xenon arc lamp , filter and components, ensure to get high and same running parameters. Test results have a good reliability and repeatability comparing with import machines.

◆ Automatic rotating drum-type sample rack with three floors structure maximizes exposure uniformity over all specimens

◆ 6,500cm2 exposure area , can hold different shapes and sizes samples.

◆ Can set the cumulative energy (total irradiance energy)obtained by sample to finish a test procedure. 

◆ Advanced cooling system for xenon lamp and intelligent air system.

◆ Chinese or English operation window 


Can set and control automatically many test parameters

◆ Irradiance energy can be set and accurately controlled(340nm,420nm,300nm~400nm,300nm~800nm). The “Closed-Loop” control system can monitor and automatically compensate the change of light intensity caused by ageing or other factors.

◆ Working room temperature, BPT(black panel temperature)and BST(black standard temperature)can be set and controlled automatically. With high precision Pt 100 temperature sensor, all these temperatures could be monitored accurately.

◆ Working room relative humidity can be set and controlled automatically. With ultrasonic wave humidifying system, the working room can obtain more stable and uniform humidity distribution.

◆ Can set spray way to sample(front spray or back spray), spray time and spray interval time.
