Thermal shock testing is conducted to determine the products ability to function either in it’s intended use, or in extreme environments. These tests are performed to determine the products ability to survive constant or fast rate temperature cycling.

We conduct thermal shock testing in New Zealand for a range of customers and industries.

Why thermal shock testing?

Thermal shock testing is a great tool for determining the resilience of electronic, electromechanical, plastic, and mechanical products that will be deployed in the medical, consumer, aerospace, defence, or automotive industries.

Exposing your product to environmental stresses reduces the risk of field failures brought about by changes in climate. In particular, electronic products suffer degradation through exposure to both temperature change and extremes.

Our Thermal Shock Test Chamber

We operate an Espec TSA-102EL-A Thermal Shock chamber, it’s capacity is 100L, and it’s capable of moving from -65 to +200C at approximately 15C/minute.
