What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to how extreme conditions affect products or biological specimens. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions while being able to get exact readings. Charles F. Conrad innovated the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing his personal freezer to allow for temperatures of -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

In the years that have followed, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or dust-filled environments.

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 St. Louis, MO researchers can be sure that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.
