VOC test chamber EK250A

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 EK250A allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions, and is fully compliant with the requirements of PV 3942 Volkswagen Method, GS97014-3 BMW Method and PN 780 Porsche Method. The chamber meets also all requirements of ISO 12219-4 – with the exception of the chamber size.

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.
