Standard models are designed for continuous salt spray tests, conducted at a single user-adjustable temperature, such as ASTM B117, ISO 9227, JIS Z 2371 etc.

They may be used with pH neutral salt solutions (NSS) or test solutions acidified by the addition of Acetic Acid (ASS) or Cupric Acid (CASS). Premium models can perform the same basic salt spray tests as Standard models, but in addition are equipped with extra features which enable them to undertake ‘modified’ tests such as ASTM G85. Here conventional salt spray is usually combined with one other climate, in a two-part cycle. For example: salt spray and condensation humidity (SWAAT) or salt spray and drying (PROHESION).
