VOC emission test chamber with active temperature control

The Olfasense VOC emission test chamber with active temperature control allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions.

The VOC emission test chamber is fully compliant with common European and international standards as well as specific automotive manufacturers’ standards.

The standard size of the chamber is 250l. Various other chamber volumes are optionally available.

For temperature control and thermal desorption, the VOC emission test chamber is built into a technologically advanced incubator from a well-known German manufacturer.

The chamber has been developed in close cooperation with experts from industry and research and can be used for a broad analytical performance spectrum via 4 heated sample ports.

Find out more below about how our VOC emission test chamber with active temperature control is used for highly accurate and affordable VOC chamber testing in different industry applications.

Chamber testing in the automotive industry

The quality of indoor air in vehicles is strongly influenced by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from components, semi-finished products and materials used in the vehicle interior.

The Olfasense VOC emission test chamber with active temperature control allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds from these materials under precise test conditions.

The chamber is fully compliant with the requirements of PV 3942 Volkswagen Method, GS97014-3 BMW Method and PN 780 Porsche Method. It meet also all requirements of ISO 12219-4 – with the exception of the chamber size.

Standard compliance

    • Fully compliant with
      • GS97014-3 BMW Method (Determination of VOCs from components, semifinished products and materials)
      • PN 780 Porsche Method (Interieur – Emission behavior)
      • PV 3942 Volkswagen Method (Determining organic emissions from components for the passenger compartment of motor vehicles. Emission test)
    • Meets all requirements of ISO 12219-4 (Determination of VOCs from vehicle interior parts and materials ) – with the exception of the chamber size

    Chamber testing of combustible air fresheners

    Combustible air fresheners, such as scented candles, are intended to enhance the odour quality of indoor air by releasing their fragrance aromas through the candle smoke. This may lead to an increased level of volatile organic compounds (VOC), which can influence the quality of indoor air.

    The European Standard EN 16738 defines a test method for the determination of these VOC emissions from combustible air fresheners. The test method is based on the operation of an emission test chamber according to ISO 16000-9.

    The Olfasense VOC emission test chamber with active temperature control allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds from combustible air fresheners under precise test conditions. The chamber is fully compliant with the requirements of ISO 16000-9 and EN 16738.

    Standard compliance

      Fully compliant with

      • EN 16738 (Emission safety of combustible air fresheners – test methods)
      • ISO 16000-9 (VOC emissions from building products and furnishing)
      • EN 16516 (VOC emissions from construction products)
      • GEV Testing Method (VOC emissions from products for flooring installation, adhesives, and building materials)
