Climatic tests of large components
Climatic tests minimise unexpected corrosion or material damage in the operational phase. Have your products tested under realistic atmospheric sea conditions.
A climatic chamber with huge possibilities
In the climatic test chamber, providing a volume of approximately 900 m3, large components, structures and functional systems can be tested under realistic atmospheric sea conditions.
The climatic test chamber is the only commercially available in Northern Europe providing a combination of three different environmental systems to perfectly simulate an offshore environment:
- Temperature control
- Humidity control
- Salt spray.
The three environmental parameters can be individually controlled or be programmed as combined effects to simulate the harsh offshore atmosphere as realistically as possible.
Can your system withstand the environment?
In addition to the relatively simple exposure tests, accelerated tests can be conducted. An accelerated test can run with single or combined effects designed to react on a particular element of the test subject.
Furthermore, a variety of land-based equipment can be tested. Examples include onshore wind turbines, transporting systems, radar systems, air-conditioning systems, traffic-regulating systems, warning systems and lighting systems.
Testing of functional systemsThe climatic chamber is especially well suited for testing functional systems e.g. a crane system, an engine or a hydraulic system.
The climatic chamber is located inside a large test hall, which allows for testing functional split-systems. An example is a heating/cooling system consisting of both indoor and outdoor modules, where one part can be located and manipulated inside the climatic chamber while the other part is located in the test hall.
In this way virtually all systems can be tested and verified for both corrosion resistance and for desired performance under a variety of atmospheric conditions.
Customised testsTesting in the climatic chamber can be customised to meet your specific demands. If you need assistance in the process of designing the test for your needs, we shall be happy to guide you.
The climatic chamber is also capable of performing to a number of standards.

Strategic partnership for the benefit of industry
FORCE Technology has assisted industries world-wide with challenges relating to materials and systems for more than 75 years. Our vast experience is one of our most essential values to our customers.
However, we are constantly striving to develop advanced materials and testing solutions. Therefore, FORCE Technology has formed a strategic partnership with Lindoe Offshore Renewable Centre (LORC) in order to offer tests of large components and systems.
The partnership between LORC and FORCE Technology has resulted in establishing Lindoe Component and Structure Testing A/S. The new facility for developing and testing of large components and systems has been established at the Lindoe Port of Odense, Denmark.
