Espec Large Elevator Thermal Shock Chamber


The Espec TSD-101-W two-zone thermal shock chambers have been developed in order to comply with the most common international standards for thermal shock tests. Its great test capacity and excellent temperature distribution are aspects that make this shock chamber suitable for use across a wide range of applications. The TSD-101-W is mainly used by companies from the automotive, aviation, aerospace, oil and semiconductor industries during product development and research activities.

With its standard temperature range of -77 °C to +205 °C, this advanced shock chamber is suitable for the most extreme shock tests. Temperature modifications of up to +220 or even +300 °C are also possible. This shock chamber also features a Specimen Temperature Trigger (STT) function, enabling test times to be shortened and the product temperature to be controlled more accurately.
