What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on test subjects. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions while being able to get exact readings. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by redesigning a residential freezer to reach temperatures of -87℃. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly ordered two more.

Since then, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or dust-filled environments.

One of the main advantages of using test chambers is that they allow for very precise control of numerous different environmental factors. This means that Chapel Hill, NC researchers can be sure the integrity of their research.
