Thermal Shock Chambers

 

Thermal Shock Chambers designed mainly to meet the requirements of MIL-STD 883, Method 1010 and MIL-STD 202, Method 107, temperature cycling and thermal shock respectively, these chambers test the resistance of electronic components and assemblies to sudden and severe temperature changes.

 Thermal shock chambers are offered in two configurations:

  • Two-Zone Operation
  • Dual Load Operation

Two-Zone

Thermal Shock Chambers

The product is transferred, through a product basket transport system between hot and cold chambers.

 

Dual Load

Thermal Shock Chambers

The product is transferred horizontally between hot and cold chambers in a two-basket transfer carriage. Three chambers are used, one hot chamber at each end, and a cold chamber in the center. This configuration allows uninterrupted operation of the cold zone, doubling product load handling capability for high production applications while increasing operation efficiency and decreasing operation costs.

 Thermal Shock Chambers Features

  • Vapor-tight interior liners made of 100% continuously welded stainless steel
  • Control system provides fully automatic, PID, chamber control through a user-friendly alpha-numeric display
  • Available in horizontal or vertical configurations and two zone operation
  • Carriage transport is automatically controlled and positioned and includes a large wire mesh stainless steel product basket

Thermal shock is a method of environmental testing that subjects a product to flashing extremes of high and low temperatures. Thermal shock testing allows for the observation of changes in product characteristics and failure occurrence caused by different materials and their thermal expansion coefficients. A thermal gradient difference in the different parts of the object expands by different amounts and can cause cracking and failure.
