VOC test chamber EK1000

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 EK1000 allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions, and is fully compliant with the requirements of ISO 12219-4 and VDA 276.

The chamber meets also all requirements of the manufacturer standardards GS97014-3 (BMW method), PN 780 (Porsche method), VCS 1027, 2769 (Volvo method), as well as PV 3942 (Volkswagen method).

The chamber is optionally available with a SHED function for testing according to GS-97014-2, as well as a fogging device according to VDA 276-2 and PV 3943 Volkswagen Method.

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.
