What is the Size of Your Specimens?

The following sizes of test chambers are available:

      Front loading cabinets     
(volume in liters) 

  300, 400, 1000, 3000, 3500

 Top loading chests
(volume in liters) 

  600, 1000

How Big is the Available Floor Area?

VLM offers the choice between the  front loading  and  top loading  chambers

    1. Front loading cabinets 
The front loading cabinets have particularly small footprint since all accessories (e.g. water plant, solution tanks, climate module) can be placed inside the bench cabinet underneath the test chamber.

The test chamber area is located at eye level which makes it very easy to manipulate with specimens and clean the chamber. The test process can be monitored through the safety  pane of the the front door.

      2. Top loading chests
The top loading chests require a larger footprint since all accessories (the tanks with the test solution, the plant for water treatment and possibly the climate module) has to be placed around the chests.

The chests are particularly suitable for heavy specimens which can be loaded into the test area with a hoist. Moreover, the test process can be monitored through the transparent acrylic hood.
