The Air Bomb Apparatus is designed to test rubber parts against resistance to ageing. The parts of rubber are aged in an atmosphere of oxygen under pressure and an elevated temperature for a specified duration and then allowed to condition at room temperature at specified time.
The Air Bomb Apparatus consists of a Pressure Chamber designed to retain an internal atmosphere of Oxygen under pressure with provision for placing rubber test pieces. The chamber is fitted with a heater. The working chamber is made up of Stainless Steel 6mm think sheet provided with a lid and special gasket to prevent leakages.
The Chamber is provided with a digital indicator cum controller to control temperature from 50°C above ambient to 150°C with an accuracy of +/- 1°C.
Also provided on the chamber are Pressure Gauge/Pressure regulator to read and control the pressure, inlet/outlet valves for admitting and releasing oxygen and a safety valve.
Size of the Chamber: 150mm Dia X 300mm Depth
Oxygen/Air Pressure: Up to 21kg/cm2
Temperature: Ambient to 150°C
