Fogging tester, EB 03C

The EB 03C fogging tester is an equipment for determination of windscreen fogging in vehicles according to ISO 6452 and SAE J1756.

The instrument has a compact design with both the heating bath and cooling bath integrated in one casing. For cooling of the water bath the EB 03C is equipped with a built in cooling system with Peltier elements.

To read the results different methods can be used. You can weigh the sample to determine the mass of condensable constituents (gravimetric method). You can also use a gloss meter or a hazemeter for determination of fogging value.


Meets the requirements for fogging tests, according to ISO 6452, SAE J1756 and other automotive standards.

Temperature range

  • Heating bath: +40 to +130 °C
  • Cooling bath: +20 to +80 °C

For using of the gravimetric method you need a 5 decimal balance (ask us for a suitable option) and aluminium foil discs (EB 03.09).

We can offer a gloss meter (HACS-380) and a haze meter (HATH-100) for determination of fogging value.

Other company specific methods can also occur.
