QCT CONDENSATION TESTER

QCT CONDENSATION TESTER

The QCT condensation tester simulates the damaging effects of outdoor moisture attack by condensing warm water directly onto test specimens. In a few days or weeks, the QCT tester can reproduce the damage due to moisture that occurs over months or years outdoors.

The QCT tester is fast, easy to use and affordable. It uses 100% condensing humidity to simulate and accelerate damage caused by rain and dew on metals, paints, and organic materials. It accelerates over natural exposures by increasing moisture temperature. The QCT tester replaces water immersion and ordinary (non-condensing) humidity tests.


The QCT condensation tester is used in thousands of labs in over 50 countries. It is the simplest, most reliable, and easiest to use condensation tester available.

The QCT tester has an automatic dry-off system, which works by blowing heated air into the test chamber. A combination of wet and dry periods can be programmed through the use of a 24 hour repeating timer, which is capable of splitting day into 96 increments of 15 minutes. The QCT tester is shipped completely wired and assembled.

The QCT tester has a sample capacity of 62 Panels at 75mm x 150mm or 48 panels at 100 x 150mm. It has a temperature range capability from room temperature to 72 degrees Celsius.

The QCT testers water consumption is approximately 2 liters of ordinary tap water per day. It has an automatic water feed that connects to a supply through 6mm plastic tubing. It has a corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum construction, with a water pan that is glass-lined with a magnesium anode for cathodic protection.
