ACS Compact chambers for Research and Sustainability

Used in a variety of fields of application, Compact chambers are space-saving, high-performance and super-equipped.

Performance and flexibility: the Compact chambers offer high performance in a limited space. They are ideal for those who want to carry out their own climatic and thermostatic tests without the availability of a large test laboratory.


Compact chambers provide the same functionality as a climatic chamber, with a complete configuration including an inspection window and a number of additional benefits:

  • Small footprint
  • Easy installation
  • Low power consumption
  • Low noise emissions

They are often the perfect solution for R&D departments needing to test small components and specimens with limited dimensions.

DISCOVER THE COMPACT LINE OF CLIMATIC CHAMBERS

 

DY200 for the Catholic University of Piacenza

The Catholic University of Piacenza has chosen the DY200 model for its research and environmental sustainability activities at the Department of Sustainable Crop Production.
The team led by entomologist Ilaria Negri is involved in projects relating to biodiversity and climate change that we are proud to support through our technology.

 

The From Seed to Spoon project

Reproducing climatic conditions in controlled environments camere climatiche compact per biodiversità e  apimakes it possible to study the lethal and sublethal effects pollutants can have on bees health, looking for preventive and corrective actions to protect an animal species fundamental to our planet, but at serious risk of extinction. Helping bees to maintain their ethological and morphological characteristics is a fundamental first step in ecological detection.

Our climatic chamber is currently being used to incubate a frame of Apis mellifera brood: the aim is to determine the best climatic conditions for their growth.

The DEBUG project

DEBUG is another important study by the Catholic University of Piacenza aimed at understanding how climate change affects biodiversity. In order to promote sustainable management of agriculture, the Research Team studies the effects of the introduction of alien species into our territory and the consequences of changed climatic conditions on harmful organisms. The alien species being studied is the Asian bug, Halyomorpha halys, an extremely voracious and polyphagous insect that is threatening various sectors (fruit and vegetables, large herbaceous crops, horticulture, etc.).


cimice-asiaticaDr Ilaria Negri says: "By using a climatic chamber, the effect of specific environmental parameters (for example, typical parameters of the microhabitats of a crop) on the physiology and life cycle of pests can be verified. This allows us to know what are the conditions that determine greater or lesser physiological stress for an insect and which are therefore the (micro) areas of crops most susceptible to infestations, so as to be able to implement targeted and localized sustainable defense interventions, according to a principle of Precision Crop Protection. These data can also be used to integrate predictive models of the spread of infestations in the field, also in light of the climate changes underway."
