TDW 4040

Test Chamber for Determining the Stationary Heat Transfer Properties with a Heat Flow Meter in Accordance with DIN EN 1934

The compact test chamber TDW 4040 was designed for testing brickwork (such as brick, lime sand brick, concrete, or aerated concrete) and basically simulates the temperature and the natural convection inside and outside a building. Optionally, the humidity level in the two sections of the chamber can be set as needed. The HotBox software at the measurement and control units is used to set all parameters, as well as for complete data logging, detailed analysis and printing of test reports. There are also other devices, accessories and materials that allow for sample preparation and conditioning to optimize the testing procedure.
