Thermal Shock Testing Services, Temperature Shock Test Lab
Rocky Mountain Testing Solutions features contract thermal shock testing services capable of producing conditions to meet MIL-STD 810F method 503.4 and RTCA/DO160 temperature/thermal shock protocols or customer specified. Thermal shock occurs when a temperature rise causes different parts of an object to expand by different amounts. This disparity of expansion can be understood in terms of stress and strain. At some point, this stress can exceed the strength of the material, causing a crack to form. If nothing stops this crack from expanding through the material, it will cause the object's structure to fail. Products, parts or packages that are being shipped from a warm environmental to a very cold location during transportation or loading should undergo thermal shock testing to replicate real-life circumstances. Thermal shock testing is designed for testing electrical, automotive, and military/aircraft parts and components. Be assured, that our lab has all of the equipment and experience to conduct these tests in the appropriate manner to industry standards.
The thermal shock chambers in our laboratory are used for testing products and are specifically designed to thermally shock and stress a product as a result of rapid temperature changes with a temperature range -90.4°F to +392°F (-68°C to +200°C). The package or product undergoes a pre-determined number of cycles during which it is exposed to extremely high temperatures and then extremely low temperatures immediately afterwards before going back to ambient temperature. After the final thermal shock cycle has been performed, the package or product is inspected for damage, loss of reliability, and loss of performance.
RMTS will conduct your thermal shock testing project according to the exact requirements specified. We will consult with you on custom climatic test protocols allowing for a very close approximation of the actual thermal conditions that your product will endure. Our lab technicians will work with you to identify the correct transfer time between temperature exposures and the appropriate dwell time at each extreme, for example. When testing is completed, you will receive reliable and accurate testing report for your product qualification and third-party validation testing. Contact us if you're ready to test now or if you need assistance in developing an thermal shock test specification.
