What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes or cabinets used to how extreme conditions affect products or biological specimens. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by redesigning his personal freezer to reach temperatures of -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly ordered another two.

Ever since, hundreds of manufacturers have invented test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or dust-filled 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 several different environmental factors, Richmond, VA researchers can create environments that would be impossible to duplicate outside of a test chamber.
