Environmental Chambers: Designed for Product Testing

Environmental chambers are large reactors and are usually made from glass or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film, in which chemical reactions to the gas phase are conducted to simulate changes in the atmosphere. The chemical may be started with natural sunlight or artificial ultraviolet lighting. Checkout A-1 Certified Environmental Services, LLC.

Environmental chambers consist of comfortable wireless systems complete with fine-calibrated sensor caps, logger caps and applications for complaints. They are designed to test the products at different temperatures, from extreme cold to extreme hot.

These can also measure temperature, vibration, rapidly accelerated stress screening, life check or any of these combinations. These are used to test the effects on biological articles, industrial products , materials and electronic devices and components of specified environmental conditions.

Someone may use the chambers for:

  • As a stand-alone test of test specimens’ environmental effects.
  • As preparation for further physical or chemical testing of research specimens.
  • As environmental conditions for analyzing the specimens.

Environmental test chambers replicate artificially the conditions under which they might be exposed to machinery, materials, devices or components. This might involve conditions that may not be expected, such as: high temperatures, abrupt and severe changes in temperatures, moisture or relative humidity, electro-dynamic vibrations, weathering of rain and others.

Chambers may be small rooms used both for the preparation and processing of specimens. They may be smaller units which are used for test items for conditioning. Some test chambers are small enough to be installed on a universal testing machine or other test equipment.

Environmental chambers vary widely in size, they can be small units built for placing in chambers on bench tops to broad walk. A number of user control options are available with the large difference in size, from basic analog indicators up to digital readouts with LCD displays.
