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 precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad innovated the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by modifying his home freezer to allow for temperatures of -87℃. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly ordered two more.

Ever since, hundreds of manufacturers have innovated test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or replicating various altitudes.

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 Chicago, IL researchers can be confident that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

Our system can simulate over 2,700 meters at sea level, while the pressure stays the same. Our altitude testing units have been used by numerous well-known clients, including the U.S. Speed Skating Team, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Tour de France winners among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These are ideal for Chicago, IL scientists who require ramp/soak programming. These chambers allow you to see how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject undergoes a series of extreme temperature fluctuations that it might encounter during its lifespan. You can easily change the temperatures, duration of testing, and how many cycles are performed each day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are ideal for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for prescriptions, food and beverage, and personal care products. They have a temperature range of -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series chambers can be utilized as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. They can maintain temperatures as low as 5℃ or as high as 70℃ and offer maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our proprietary ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots within the unit and greatly decreases required maintenance expenses.
