How does a Thermal Shock Chamber work?

Thermal Shock Chambers used for product development.

Thermal shock chambers are designed and developed to meet the strictest test standards with extreme thermal conditions from -90 °C to +220 °C. The chamber consists of 2 or 3 cabinets in vertical or horizontal positions. The transfer between Hot and Cold cabinets is carried out in less than 10 seconds and the samples are subjected to thermal shocks as many times as necessary.

3 – cabinet thermal shock chamber (vertical)

The samples to be tested are positioned on the shelf or shelves in the basket that passes alternatively from a cold cabinet to a hot cabinet, thus creating thermal shocks.
Several regulation systems are available, either on the “air” sensor, or on the “basket” sensor, or even, optionally, on a sensor directly placed in proximity to the product (“product” sensor).

Double-flow air ventilation guarantees perfect homogeneity in each cabinet and guarantees the heating/cooling to reach the required temperature more quickly.
