Abstract

A variable volume test chamber useful to evaluate the ozone output of office machines, such as copiers and the like, is adapted to simulate a variety of room sizes and airflow conditions, to substantially duplicate differing office conditions. Chamber 10 consists of four fixed walls 12, 14, 16, and 18, and ceiling 20 which are constructed to form an airtight chamber. The perimeter of the chamber is also sealed at the floor line. An airtight door 22 is located in end wall 14, and control panel 24 is located near that same end. Windows 26 are mounted in side wall 12. These windows are mounted flush to the inside of the wall, and all wiring, plumbing and other services are routed within the walls and ceiling.
