What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to how extreme conditions affect test subjects. 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 modifying a residential freezer to allow for temperatures as low as -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

Ever since, hundreds of manufacturers have developed test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or sea-salt environments.

In addition to temperature and humidity, test chambers can also be used to control other aspects of the environment, such as air pressure, atmospheric composition, and even electromagnetic fields. By controlling these factors, Oakland, CA researchers can create environments that they wouldn't be able to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These are perfect for Oakland, CA companies looking for ramp/soak controls. These units permit you to determine how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your product is put through a series of extreme temperature changes that it might encounter during its life cycle. You can easily change the temperatures, duration of testing, and how many cycles are performed each day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are great for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, food and beverage, and personal care products. They have a temperature range of -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units are ideal for pharmaceutical stress testing at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer superior control and uniformity. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system does not allow for hot spots in the chamber and significantly reduces required maintenance costs.
