Thermal shock test is a method of environmental testing that
subjects a product to alternating extremes of high and low
temperatures. Thermal shock testing allows for the observation of
changes in product characteristics and failure occurrence caused by
different materials and their thermal expansion coefficients. A
thermal gradient difference in the different parts of the object
expands by different amounts and can cause cracking and failure.
KOMEG brand thermal shock and thermal stress chambers have been
designed to operate in accordance with reliability programs,
quality control, and commercial test programs and military test.
KOMEG offers several configurations of thermal shock chambers
capable of meeting a wide variety of testing needs.
Vertical, two zone chamber has hot and cold zones that can be
Horizontal, three zone thermal shock chamber utilizes controlled
areas for hot, ambient and cold temperatures.
Double duty thermal shock chambers from KOMEG are designed with hot
zones above and below the cold zone and a two compartment product
carrier that simultaneously moves products between the hot and cold
