What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes, of various sizes, used to how particular conditions affect 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 purposing his personal freezer to reach temperatures of -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly ordered two more.

Ever since, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or sea-salt environments.

One of the main advantages of using test chambers is that they allow for very precise control of the environment. This means that Madison, WI researchers can be sure that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

It is highly customizable in terms of varying the freeze and thaw temperatures, duration in the freeze and thaw parts of a cycle, and overall number of cycles per day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are well-suited for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and cosmetic products. They have a temperature range of -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units can be used as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer superior control and uniformity. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots in the chamber and significantly reduces required maintenance costs.
