Weathering Device Tests Sunlight Effects

prod_foc_100.jpgThe UV2000 fluorescent UV condensation weathering instrument tests the effects of sunlight on coatings, plastics, textiles, adhesives, sealants, and other materials. The device operates with a power supply system designed to increase bulb life, which reportedly generates steadier output and eliminates the need for bulb rotation.

The UV2000 also features a controller with a touch-screen display for setting up test parameters, and a microprocessor-based test control with test parameter storage. The UV2000 provides complete irradiance control, as well as superior air and temperature distribution. The device also has a low-water-level alarm, and a safety for the water heater and high-temperature chamber.

The UV2000 uses eight 40W fluorescent UV lamps. A countdown timer controls the duration of a test, and an operation meter displays the total hours the instrument has been in use. The instrument is equipped with independent UV and condensation cycle switches, and specimen holders for 75-by-300-mm and 100-by-300-mm panels. Spray for thermal shock or water-initiated erosion is an option.
