Adiabatic saturation systems

Branca Idealair offers adiabatic saturation solutions and systems for testing environments, cabins and chambers foreseen for tests on cardboard, curing of concrete specimens, and high humidity treatments during the manufacturing processes of products in the automotive sector

The saturation environments designed by Branca Idealair have the task to bring an internal compartment in saturation conditions, suitable thermo-hygrometric parameters for curing of concrete and cementitious mortars and also to carry out tests on materials with laboratory instrumentation; consider the treatment of corrugated cardboard packaging at saturation conditions to verify compressive strength or industrial vaporization treatments in the automotive sectors.

The choice of materials and components is suitably analyzed by our engineers for these special applications in adiabatic vapour saturation considering structural elements such as the thickness of the walls with an adequate coefficient of thermal transmittance (< 0,35 W/m2K) and keeping attention at the sealing of the internal volume through a work of perfect insulation at every juncture of the cabin.

Saturation insulated cabins allow to get easier high-humidity conditions commonly used to simulate the maturing of construction materials such as cement blocks, to perform DHT (Damp Heat Test) on products for processing analyses and preparation of samples for laboratory tests e.g. tests on cardboard packaging for compression and stacking tests.

A special application of Branca Steaming Oven has been applied in the Automotive Industry processing to improve quality of luxury woods: this is a special treatment in processing, where the material are subjected to, before applying protective solvents to the briar parts of interior car design.

The design is custom and the choice of materials for the construction is foreseen for such applications considering the thickness of the walls and an excellent insulation performed in every point of the inner compartment, it serves to bring the environments to high values ​​of humidity controlled from 90% up to 99.5% and temperatures from 20 C to 80 C.

Here below are presente our solutions for high-humidity systems control offered by Branca Idealair:

is a humidity control unit capable of reaching and maintaining constant high percentages of relative humidity with steady temperature at 20C.
Its insulated chamber is design to avoid any risks of wetting samples due to water drops from the ceiling thanks to the arrangement of a suitable preheated bulkhead.
Other applications can be described in physical resistance to compression and stacking test methods, maturing of cement block samples according to the UNI EN 196/1 and for compression and stacking testing on paperboard and cardboard packaging according to the Standard UNI EN ISO 2233:2001.
a vapour saturation cabin with a big internal volume able to reach rapidly desired humidity values over 99,5% and with temperature settings starting from external temperatura up to 70 C and easily programmable in thermal trend profiles.
