Test Chamber Emissions Measurements of Components
Test chamber tests for VOC measurements of emitting components and products
Electromechanical components, electronic assemblies, sensors, and control units can release substances that lead to contamination and deposits on surfaces and contacts, causing malfunctions. In our accredited DEKRA testing laboratory, we offer a wide range of emission test chamber methods to determine emitting substances (VOC).

Safe identification of harmful emission sources
Emissions test chamber methods are used to examine components, packaging materials, and electronic components for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Emission sources of VOCs, such as alkanes, aldehydes, and siloxanes (silicone emissions), can be reliably identified through these procedures.
This approach can also be used to analyze outgassing pollutants from building materials and furniture, as well as consumer articles and detergents. It is particularly valuable when elevated readings of health-harming substances or indoor air quality limits are detected in buildings or office spaces during indoor air quality assessments.
Precise test chamber measurements for various requirements
In our accredited DEKRA testing laboratory, our experts offer you a wide range of analysis methods for emission and formaldehyde measurements in the test chamber, based on the requirements of different standards. Additional residue analyses can be conducted using techniques such as REM/EDX, XRD, FT-IR, and ion chromatography (ionic contamination according to IPC TM-650, 2.3.25 and 2.3.28, as well as TMC-60, 2.3.28).
