The Xenotest Beta+ FD is an enhanced version of this company’s Xenotest Beta+ weathering testing instrument. The new instrument can enable consumer goods manufacturers to test products realistically under accelerated conditions-typically with time-saving factors of >10 vs. real time.

The instrument offers two custom racks: a one-tier bottle rack and a two-tier soft-packaging rack. Both carry loads up to 20 kg and fit a variety of specimen shapes and sizes. Other features include the use of XENOCHROME filters, which can reportedly deliver the right light; an efficient chiller that guarantees realistic test temperatures even at high acceleration levels; and easy programming and monitoring using new online features.
