To ensure the quality of products such as technical, organic and pharmaceutical goods, it is necessary to check the impact of environmental factors. The aim of an environmental simulation is to replicate an accelerated product life cycle and draw conclusions about the service life, functionality and effectiveness of products.
Our test chambers give you the ability to accurately simulate temperature and humidity and to test products for their characteristics in changing climatic conditions.
Stability tests and ageing tests in the pharmaceutical industry
Particularly in pharmaceutical quality assurance and development, the simulation of thermal and climatic conditions plays a significant role, as minor deterioration of product quality can have a direct impact on the health of consumers. With the help of our high-precision climate chambers, you can draw conclusions about changes in the quality of active ingredients under certain environmental conditions and define the shelf-life and storage conditions.
The main requirement for climatic chambers for stability tests is that parameters during the climate simulation can be controlled as precisely as possible and kept stable. This will give you solid and reproducible results.
Stability studies for pharmaceutical products are mandatory according to ICH guidelines (International Conference for Harmonization). These guidelines define the requirements for drugs and pharmaceuticals in all climate zones. We offer the perfect tool for stability testing in the pharmaceutical industry. Pre-calibrated for all ICH climate profiles and equipped with a GMP qualification package, the STKK climatic chamber for ICH guidelines is perfect for stability tests of pharmaceuticals.
Accelerated shelf-life tests in the food industry
To ascertain the minimum shelf-life of a product, it must be stored under real conditions. Testing the minimum shelf life in real time, however, would take far too much time.
Accelerated shelf-life testing allows the artificial simulation of degradation rates and stability changes that are typically encountered under real-life storage conditions. Chemical, microbiological and physical changes of the product are measured at specific time intervals until the product no longer meets the requirements of quality or food safety.
In addition to predicting product stability over time, accelerated durability tests are needed for a variety of other purposes, such as identifying food safety for improper storage conditions, eliminating errors in the initial stages of product development and manufacturing, and evaluating the suitability of product packaging.
Our chambers are perfectly suited for the food industry, given their ability to perform precise climate change tests as well as maintaining long-term, highly stable temperature and humidity values.
Conditioning of plastics and materials
The conditioning of materials is typically performed to improve some of the properties required for processing. In particular, the conditioning of polyamides is of central importance in plastics manufacture. The material -brittle in its dry state- becomes impact-resistant by absorbing water and loses some of its strength.
Having a wide humidity range and moisture stability, you can implement exact conditioning with our climate chambers and record precise test data to ensure the quality of your products.
Calibration of temperature and humidity sensors
If you need to calibrate industrial temperature and humidity sensors, you need a reliable temperature or humidity source.
Our climate and temperature chambers provide an excellent combination of accuracy and value for money when it comes to industrial calibration applications. When choosing a chamber for industrial sensor calibration, you should consider -among others- the temperature or humidity range, the accuracy and stability, the flexibility of applications, the throughput and dimensions/access for probes requiring calibration.
The temperature range limit of a chamber must meet at least the test requirements for your sensors. Ideally, the calibration capability should cover the entire usable range of the sensor under test.
In addition to our climate chambers and temperature cabinets, we also offer other equipment specially designed for calibration, such as calibration baths, temperature calibration chambers and humidity generators.
