What is an Environmental Test Chamber and How Does It Work?

With the rapid development of the modern industrial technology,electrical, electronic products have been widely used. At the same time, the environmental conditions of them are becoming more and more complicated. Only by properly regulating the environmental protection measures of the products can the products be protected from damage during storage and transportation, and safe and reliable during use. Therefore, electrical and electronic products used in artificially simulated environmental tests are an essential part of ensuring high quality.

In this article, we’ll explain what a test chamber is and how it works.

Environmental Test Chamber

Environmental testing equipment is a technological means to simulate the natural environment and climate, causing damage to modern industrial products. When selecting a simulated test project, the requirements for the use of the test items should be specifically analyzed. The selected test items should represent the main use environment, and can speed up the test and save money.

Types of Testing Involved

The environmental test chamber is the general name for all the test chambers simulating the natural climatic environment. The representative products include salt spray test chamber, high and low temperature test chamber, constant temperature and humidity test chamber, ultraviolet aging test chamber, xenon lamp aging test chamber, ozone aging test chamber, oven, etc. In this article, we will mention several of the test equipment to illustrate.

How Do They Work?

The temperature and humidity test chamber is suitable for testing electronic, electrical appliances, food, automobiles, rubber, plastic glue, metal and other products. It can meet different environmental conditions such as high temperature and high humidity, high temperature and low humidity, low temperature and high humidity, high temperature and low temperature, and will provide you with the basis for forecasting and improving product quality and reliability.

They mainly use temperature and refrigeration systems. The main function is cooling, generally using advanced refrigerator control technology to stabilize the test space. Secondly, the test chamber also needs to use the dehumidification system to solve the problem of humidity.

(1) High low temperature test chambers are suitable for high temperature and low temperature reliability tests of industrial products. For the parts and materials of related products such as electric and electronic, automobile and motorcycle, aerospace, shipbuilding, colleges and universities, research institutes, and other high-temperature and low-temperature (alternating) cyclical changes, test their performance indicators.

(2)The constant temperature humidity test chamber is also called constant temperature humidity test machine. It is used to test various materials for heat resistance, cold resistance, dry resistance and moisture resistance. It is suitable for electronics, electrical appliances, communication, Instruments, vehicles, plastic products, metals, food, chemicals, building materials.

The salt spray corrosion test chamber can evaluate the salt spray corrosion resistance of the material and its protective layer, and the process quality of similar protective layers. At the same time, it can evaluate the resistance of some products to salt spray corrosion. The product is suitable for parts and electronics. Original, protective coatings for metallic materials and salt spray corrosion tests for industrial products.

Why Use Test Chamber?

Industrial products are subject to various temperature, humidity, climate and external conditions during manufacturing, handling, storage and application. These factors may cause physical, mechanical, and even chemical changes in the product. This will make the product lose its effect, reduce the value or create danger!

Do You Need an Environmental Test Chamber for Your Business?

Environmetal chambers have many functions across several industries. They use temperatures and humidity to control the environment in which we test a specific product’s properties.
