Want to buy salt spray/fog chamber or get plans to build

adv.   auto technology banner


RFQ: I am looking for a used salt spray corrosion test chamber.

Small one would be fine. One dimension must be less than 35" to fit through door into test lab.

Thank you.

RFQ: I in the same boat and was wondering if you had any luck? I have found several at the local resale shop but they need a lot of work.

Q. Need plans with dimensions and equipment B.O.M to build a Salt Spray Chamber. It can be a small unit measuring in at 1-2 cubic feet. If any one has that info or any info that can lead me to build-it-yourself unit, please let me know. Thank you.

A. Hi, José. I've been in this industry a long time, including employment with a salt spray cabinet manufacturer, and I've personally never heard of people building their own salt spray cabinets, although you're certainly welcome to try. ASTM B117 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is a good starting point because salt spray chambers are of little value if they don't comply.

As an alternative, if you don't need compliance with specific standards, you might look into "CAMRI testing"" as you could build such a test device very easily and inexpensively, and they work and are repeatable. Good luck!

Q. I want to build my own salt spray cabinet also, and I think that a home made saline chamber is not impossible. We need some pictures and specifications in order to guide the construction. I am a Mechanical Engineering Student & I am developing a corrosion project, so I need it. Thanks for the information I hope that you will send more. regards

A. It's certainly not impossible to build a salt spray cabinet, Luis. They are certainly far lower tech than an automobile or airplane. After you have ASTM B117 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] in hand, so you know what requirements the cabinet must achieve, you could take a shot at it. Still, experience is useful; when I was with a supplier we were still learning as we built our two thousandth chamber, and they've been building them for 25 years since. Some of what you see in the field is patented so you can't duplicate it based on pictures. If you just want an accelerated corrosion test for your corrosion project, please look into "CAMRI testing" (, as I think you may find that it is very very low tech, and it may not be the subject of any patents, is cheap and works well. Good luck with the project!

Q. Hello all, I am building my own cyclic corrosion chamber on a smaller scale than industrial corrosion chambers.

I believe I have most things figured out, but not the heating part.

I am building it to replicate a corrosion cycle which requires variable heated atmosphere of 50-60 °C.

The chamber will be made of sealed perspex probably in the region of L30 x H15 x W15 inches. Can anyone advise me on how to create a controllable heated atmosphere within this environment?
