What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes or cabinets used to how extreme conditions affect products or biological specimens. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad designed the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by purposing his home freezer to allow for temperatures as low as -125℉. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly asked Conrad to make two more.

Ever since, hundreds of manufacturers have invented 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 Fort Collins, CO researchers can be confident that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.
