Thermal Shock Chamber

Overview

The KTS series of the thermal shock chamber meets all of the major international test standards such as MIL-883H, MIL-202G -107G, JESD22-A104D, IEC 60068-2-14, JASO D014-4, EIAJ ED-2531A and JIS C 60068-2-14.

The thermal shock chamber has two zones namely the hot zone and the cold zone. The specimen is kept on the test basket, which is transferred between the hot & cold zones through a motorized system connected by a screw rod. It is primarily used to study the impact of the rapid change of temperature on the specimen. In real world scenarios, such rapid change in temperature causes cracking of the material, the mechanical failures and permanent change in electrical performance. It is therefore important to study and analyse such failures to design a better product in order to withstand such changing environmental conditions.

CME’s thermal shock chamber has recently undergone a series of technology upgrades to reduce the overall test time and to shorten the temperature recovery time while maintaining high uniformity. The result thus obtained shows consistent accuracy in temperature recovery and uniformity across multiple test cycles thereby improving the test reproducibility and reliability characteristics of the chamber. Inside the chamber, the hot and cold zones are sealed with specially designed gaskets to minimize leakage between the two zones. The Specially designed test basket of low thermal mass with a powerful temperature-conditioning unit enables the chamber to achieve faster recovery rates.

The test space is made of No.8 polished stainless steel of grade AISI-304, TIG welded and reinforced. The external body is sturdy and durable whereas the entry ports on the sides of the chamber allow the conduction of hassle free live testing. The 50 mm wheels of levelling casters dampen the vibration and offers easy mobility of the chamber in test labs. The hot and cold zone temperatures are constantly monitored by a RTD-Pt-100 sensor whereas a floating sensor monitors the temperature of test basket. A defrosting system is also built in to avoid defrosting in the cold zone and assisting the chamber to operate for longer durations without stoppage.

Similar to other chambers, the thermal shock chamber also has the Envicom Graphite Series controller which is touch enabled and bundled with multiple features to augment the testing experience. The ports of Ethernet, RS 232 and RS 485 ensure remote monitoring of the chamber as well as integration with the third party software such as NI/Lab view. To learn more about the Envicom Graphite Series controllers, visit its page.

Thermal shock chamber can also be customized as per the test requirements. To know more, visit the customized solution page.

The recovery time is less than 5 minutes with 0.5Kg compact steel load in the exposure range of -55°C/+150°C.

The heat transfer from the specimen will not affect the test space temperature. However, customers must share such details of the specimen during technical discussion with CME, as it will be considered while designing the chamber.

In our standard range of Thermal shock chambers, the test basket moves vertically. However, for customised solutions based on the specimen size, weight and test basket volume either horizontal or vertical movement is selected.

The chamber is equipped with an Ethernet port, which once connected enables remote access of the chamber from any part of the world through an IP address.

The support engineers from CME will install the chambers and will train you to operate the chamber.

Definitely, the chamber is covered under warranty, which is valid for 14 months from the date of supply or 12 months from the date of installations.

Our support is available across the globe. Customer can contact our support team over the phone, E-Mail or through our website. Recently we have also introduced a new support feature called “Pro-Active Support”, wherein the chamber alerts the customer about a potential snag way ahead of its occurrence!
