Thermal shock testing reduces the risk of product failure in the field by replicating a quick transition between two extreme temperatures; for example -50°C to 71°C in less than one minute. The test specification defines the applied temperatures and test conditions, this type of testing is commonly cyclic and its duration is defined by a set number of transitions (cycles) between the two temperatures.
TÜV SÜD has the capability to test at temperatures between -65°C and +190°C. At TÜV SÜD we use a two chamber method to achieve fast and efficient transition time.
We can provide manufacturers with the following testing services:
- Cyclic temperature testing
- Transfer times less than 15 seconds achievable
- Largest matched chambers 2500mm x 2300mm x 2700mm
We provide testing for thermal shock to many specifications including the following common standards:
- DEF-STAN 00-35
- IEC 60068
- MIL-STD 810
Any test not on our UKAS scope which is within our capability can be added quickly through our flexible schedule, which is a rare privilege granted to us by our accrediting authority.
