From now on, all Memmert HCP humidity chambers are available with the TwinDISPLAY convenience features as standard. A compact 56 litre benchtop model complements the humidity chamber range, first presented at Control 2018 in Stuttgart.
Extensive comfort functions
This high-quality climate chamber is an economical and almost maintenance-free alternative to appliances with active cooling, especially for applications above room temperature such as accelerated service life tests and 85/85 tests. The ControlCOCKPIT touch screen control unit is the HCP's control centre, where all parameters can be set in three quick steps. Status messages as well as time and alarm messages are also displayed simultaneously. The TwinDISPLAY convenience features also allow communication via modern interfaces and intuitive and simple programming via the control and protocol software AtmoCONTROL. Specially adapted functions such as battery-buffered operating display, SetpointWAIT function for temperature-dependent process runtime, alarm messages via e-mail or SMS and standard feed-throughs on the rear panel support reliable and precise testing processes.
Active humidity control minimises condensation
Like all Memmert climate chambers that operate in the positive temperature range, the humidity chamber HCP also has active humidity control. It guarantees reliable homogeneity of temperature and humidity as well as short recovery times after opening the door. In combination with heating on all six sides, including heated inner glass door, it minimises vaporisation in the interior and thus the risk of condensed water dripping onto the test object.

We want the process of purchasing a test chamber to be as simple as possible. Below we provide some extra information and links to our specific guides.
What is a test chamber?
A test chamber is used to simulate environmental conditions and this can be used in many applications including stability testing in a range of industry types. But how exactly is it different to a humidity chamber or an incubator? Can these units be certified medical devices? Can they perform testing in accordance with any recognised standards? What water supply is needed for a humidity chamber? If you want to know this and more including answers to an array of our most asked questions click here.
Choosing the right test chamber
Choosing the right test chamber for your application can be a bit of a minefield, with such a large selection available from our supplied brands Memmert and MMM Medcentre. Here we list the differences between chamber ranges such as what exactly the different controller types are and how this impacts use and other points to consider when selecting the most suitable chamber.
Caring for your test chamber
Test chambers are a costly purchase so you will want to keep it in top shape. You should be wiping down the chamber inside and out and be careful with how you load it to ensure efficient operation. If you want to know what else you should do to maintain your chamber and actions to follow to keep it working at its best then you can check out this page.

Camlab recognises the importance of providing our customers with a "whole life" solution when purchasing equipment from us. When buying equipment from us we offer a range of options to help your piece of mind and these are summarised below:
Validation of Temperature and Humidity Set Points
Even if you have had a Memmert instrument for some time without a service contract or you have acquired it through another channel Camlab can service and maintain it for you in accordance with Memmert guidelines. Our fully qualified service engineers can visit your site and make a full assessment of the condition of the intrument and recommend a full maintenace protocol for you. If serviced regularly and lifed items are replaced regularly Memmert equipment will be reliable and dependable, ensuring that downtime is kept to the absolute minimum. Service contract customers receive a priortiy service and we can cover any extended downtime with a loan instrument should the need arise.
9 or 27 Point Mapping Aftersales Service
Temperature mapping is one element of the operational qualification of your oven. Our engineers are both trained andqualified to provide a full temperature mapping service in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. This isa full day activity with a maximum 2 temperatures being mapped at either 9 or 27 sensor points in your oven. For each temperature, 60 measurements (1 per minute) are taken at each sensor point and you will be provided with a report showingthe results normally 2 weeks after. Whilst on site our engineers will be able to discuss any issues with you and determine whether any adjustments, modifications or repairs are required.
Operational/Performance Qualification OQ/PQ
We also complete a wide range of operational checks (OQ) to determine how your oven is operating. This includes checking every process relating to alarms, switching and control functions. PQ can either be carried out as a standalone activity or after the OQ checks. A full report pack is completed during the tests for your records. Whilst on site our engineers will be able to discuss any issues with you and determine whether any adjustments, modifications or repairs are required. This is a verification service only. Please read the related terms and conditions associated with any faults found.
