  • detailed description
  • 1. Equipment Description

    This test equipment is designed to simulate the sunlight and cause the damage of the sun's ultraviolet light, by exposing the material under a controlled high temperature to test the material for weathering. It uses UV lamps to simulate the radiation effect of sunlight and simulates dew and rain through condensation and water spray. In just a few days or weeks, the UV irradiation equipment can reproduce the damage that takes months or even years to occur outdoors, including fading, color change, loss of gloss, chalking, cracking, crazing, wrinkling, blistering, brittleness, strength reduction, oxidation, etc. The test results can be used to select new materials, improve existing materials, or evaluate changes in material formulations.

    4. Functional Area Introduction

    4.1 Irradiation system (simulated sunlight)


    Light source:

    8 rated at 40W UV fluorescent lamps with UVA-340 light source

    Irradiance control systems

    Variations in light intensity affect the rate of material aging, and differences in spectra may affect both the rate and type of aging. The irradiance is controlled by a current system to obtain accurate, repeatable test results.

    The built-in voltage system is a precise closed-loop control system that automatically maintains the set light intensity through a feedback loop. The controller can continuously monitor the UV light intensity and compensate for changes in light intensity caused by lamp aging or any other factors by adjusting the lamp output. The reproducibility and repeatability of the test results of the control system are better than manual irradiance control, and can effectively extend the life of the lamp.

    In the UV cycle, the irradiance is signaled through the controller output, and the light intensity of a group of (two) lamps is adjusted by voltage and transmits the data to the controller. The controller compares the irradiance measurement with the set value, and then the controller instructs the power system to adjust the lamp output to maintain the light intensity set value.

    UVA-340: A wavelength that emits sunlight from 315nm to 400nm, its peak radiation is at 340nm. UVA-340 is particularly useful for control testing of different experiments, and can best simulate sunlight in the short-wave UV band.

    UV circulation temperature control

    The components of the UV cycle system include a blower, air heater, air distribution system, and blackboard temperature sensor.

    a. Blower: Installed in the lower box air duct opening of the equipment, the blower is working continuously throughout the UV cycle.

    b. Air heater: installed in the upper air duct of the blower, used to heat the air blown by the blower when needed.

    c. Air distribution system: the air blown by the blower enters the test chamber through the air duct in the center of the water tray, and then the air will be guided to fill the entire test chamber.

    4.2 Condensation system (simulated dew)

    QUV condensation system is to make the water vapor being evaporated and confined within the experimental sample of the chamber, the air at the back of the sample makes the sample temperature water vapor temperature a little bit lower, this temperature difference makes the water vapor condense on the sample. During the condensation cycle, the heating element under the water tray heated to fill the chamber with water vapor, reaching equilibrium at 100% humidity, the water vapor condenses on the sample constantly. The steam condenses on the sample and finally flows back into the water pan.

    4.3 Spraying system (simulated rainwater)

    QUV spraying system consists of a high-powered water pump, nozzles, connecting pipes, control valves, and drainage parts. The nozzle is installed between the lamps, in the spraying cycle, water is sprayed onto the sample to produce the effect of thermal shock or erosion.

    4.4 The box structure characteristics

    Box using full digital control work, advanced technology, smooth lines, beautiful and generous.
