Description

SM Series

The SM series thermal shock test chamber makes it possible to quickly and autonomously transfer test items back and forth repeatedly between a hot and cold environment. Thermal shock testing is different from thermal cycling, the latter being a longer and slower process. To see a more in depth look at thermal shock versus thermal cycling, visit our About Test Chambers page. The SM series thermal shock test chamber is designed to create a 265ºC / 477ºF temperature variation very rapidly. Our standard thermal shock test chamber has two compartments, one heated and one cooled to support the rapid change in temperature exposure for the tested product. The product being tested is quickly transferred between the two zones by a pneumatic elevator. The SM series also can have a third compartment added for ambient temperature exposure to the product. The SM series is an air to air thermal shock test chamber.

SM series is both MIL-STD-202G and MIL-STD-883G compliant.

Safety

Safety Measures

We offer multiple types of safeties on our test chambers to help protect your product and your test chamber if anything malfunctions.

Heat Fuse: (Standard)

A heat fuse or thermal fuse, will interrupt the flow of electricity to the test chamber and shut it down if it reaches a certain temperature.

High Temperature Safety: (Standard)

A digital set temperature safety that will shut down the test chamber if it goes over a certain temperature.

High/Low Temperature Safety:

A digital set temperature safety that will shut down the test chamber if it goes over a certain temperature or below a certain temperature.
