BINDER KBF LQC Series Constant Climate Chambers ( KBF LQC 240, KBF LQC 720)

BINDER KBF LQC Series Constant Climate Chambers ( KBF LQC 240, KBF LQC 720)

 

Constant climate chamber with additional photometry

The special advantage of the BINDER KBF LQC series: the patented photometry for photostability testing. Two spherical 3D ball-type sensors capture visible light intensity and UV light intensity – if the desired light dosage is achieved, the KBF LQC constant climate chamber switches off automatically.

Advantages:
  • Long-term stable test conditions
  • Independent of the water supply
  • one-stop solution: Temperature/humidity/light simulation in one chamber

 

Areas of application:
  • Pharmaceuticals Industry
