Material Testing of Elastomers in Coolants
Especially in the automotive industry, components made of elastomers get in touch with coolants. In order to guarantee that these elastomers reamain fully functional even after a long operating period, they have to be tested carefully. A long operating period can be simulated by using Berghof reactor technology. Samples of elastomers are put into a reactor filled with coolants. By heating the reactor constantly for a longer time, the operating period can be simulated. For more details on the process and reactor configurations, please download the application note.
