A climatic chamber with CO2 control is designed to provide precise environmental control of temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels. The CO2 control allows researchers to simulate the effects of atmospheric changes, such as global warming, on plant and animal life. This type of chamber is particularly useful for analyzing how different organisms respond to changing environmental conditions over time. This week, We have developed a new climatic chamber for testing hardened concrete with strength tests.
It has to be said that this climatic chamber with CO2 control is a powerful design. At present, for the concentration test of carbon dioxide on the market, The concentration test range of carbon dioxide that other manufacturers can promise is 0%~20%, But we can do 0% ~ 96%. Why do other manufacturers only promise that the concentration test range of carbon dioxide is 0%~20% ? The main reason is that the sensor for carbon dioxide concentration test purchased by other suppliers will not work successfully after a high temperature of 55°C, and we are well aware of this!
Using the principle of the fluidity of air, We choose ventilation ducts to draw out the high-temperature air from the test room and cool it down. Frequent sampling of the air from the test room and the concentration test of carbon dioxide can solve the problem that the carbon dioxide sensor cannot work under high-temperature conditions. Meanwhile, with frequent sampling’s help, the test data for the concentration of carbon dioxide is also very accurate.

Why is Carbonation Testing Relevant for Building Materials? Carbonation testing of building materials is often done in a climate chamber which allows for precise control of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. Through the use of CO2 control, the environment inside the chamber can be precisely monitored and adjusted to recreate real-world conditions and determine how a given material may react under different circumstances.
By the way, The climatic chamber with CO2 control developed by Wewon Environmental Chambers Co., Ltd. meet the test standdard of BS EN 12390-2 and DIN EN 12390-2 Testing Hardened Concrete – Part 2: Making and Curing Specimens for Strength Tests; German and English Version prEN 12390-2:2017. Carbonation testing is an important tool for determining the longevity and durability of building materials. By simulating real-world conditions over multiple cycles, engineers can determine to what extent a material is susceptible to degradation from factors such as CO2 and humidity. In this way, carbonation testing can provide insights into a material’s longterm performance and potential lifecycle costs.
How Is Carbonation Tested Using Climate Chambers? Climate chambers with CO2 control can be used for accurate and repeatable carbonation testing. The chambers provide a controlled environment in which different levels of humidity and CO2 can be used as treatment in order to produce changes in the material. By monitoring these changes over multiple cycles, researchers are able to determine the extent to which a material may experience degradation due to its exposure to certain conditions.
What are the Benefits of a Climate Chamber with CO2 Control? The most obvious benefit of a climate chamber with CO2 control is the ability to replicate exact environmental conditions, meaning that results are much more repeatable and accurate. Another advantage of using such chambers is the ability to accurately control both temperature and humidity levels, as well as CO2 quantities. Moreover, these climate chambers can provide precise data logging measures that can help researchers gain a better understanding of specific materials used in building projects.
