Formaldehyde Emission Test Chamber

This test chamber is used to determine the discharge of formaldehyde by materials which emit formaldehyde. An example of this includes products constructed from wood such as furniture that frequently contains resin glue with a formaldehyde base that under certain environmental conditions may enter into the environment and thus present a danger to health. By way of the so-called Fape test, the subsequent formaldehyde emission from construction materials can be detected and its concentration can be determined.  Such emissions can be investigated in repeatable test conditions with Fape/+60 test cabinets from weisstechnik®.

The innovative WEBSeason® user interface allows you to program, control and monitor your tests at any time and anywhere – even from your tablet or smartphone


  • Constantly heating the test room’s air
  • Continually circulating pre-tempered air in the test room
  • Monitoring the air-tightness of the test chamber using a pressure sensor



Product Features

  • The test space air is heated to a constant temperature of +60 °C ±0.5 K and purged continuously with 60 l/h of temperature pre-conditioned air.
  • The components to be tested are deposited in the test chamber. The test chamber is designed as a gastight area.
  • It is temperature conditioned via the walls and a water pump circuit.
  • Leak-proofness of the test chamber is monitored via a pressure sensor and displayed on the touch-panel (operating console).
  • Setting of the overpressure is effected manually by means of a manual control valve (1000 – 1200 Pa).
  • In the test chamber, formaldehyde gas is mixed with the inlet air and led into washing bottles filled with demineralized water via the air outlet. The formaldehyde which has gassed out is dissolved in the water.
  • The routing of the outgoing air is effected by a five-fold distribution with solenoid valves. The air can be released freely into the atmosphere or it is routed via four separate pairs of gas washing bottles (not included in the scope of delivery) which are controlled by a timer.
