Thermal shock test

GWP offers you thermal shock testing in its environmental simulation laboratory as an accredited test procedure according to DIN 17025.

Temperature shock

The test consists of a rapid conversion of the samples from a lower test temperature to a higher test temperature and the repetition of this procedure for a defined number of cycles. Thermal shock tests should be performed with all products, which are exposed to rapid temperature changes in their normal use. Additionally, they are essential as aging tests for all products, which undergo a high amount of temperature change cycles in their product lifecycle. The thermal shock test is a very effective method to detect latent errors in products. The thermal shock cabinets of the company Vötsch provide highest test quality and measure accuracy in our lab:

  •     Testing chamber: 300 l
  •     Testing goods: up to 50 kg
  •     Temperature heat chamber: +50 to +220 °C Temperature cold chamber: -80 to + 70 °C

Standard: IEC 60068-2-14, MIL 810, MIL 883, DIN EN ISO 2819, DIN EN 60068-2-14
