Temperature and Humidity Cycling Tests

Temperature and humidity cycling tests offered at Micom Laboratories. Temperature and humidity cycling tests are often referred to as environmental chamber tests. During these tests, your products can be exposed to a constant temperature and relative humidity or a cycled temperature and relative humidity.

Micom operates six climatic chambers ranging from tabletop models to 1700 pi3 walk-in chambers. In addition, our testing chambers offer a temperature range covering from -78 °C to + 200 °C and a relative humidity range between 5 to 95% RH. Our largest unit can hold up to 12 pallet loads at once. The various environmental accelerated aging tests that we can perform in our facility will allow you to validate your product designs early in the development process.

Various temperature and humidity cycling tests can be used to identify problems with the product’s operation and design. In addition, chamber testing can help to better understand how the product behaves and operates on an ongoing basis.

While your units are undergoing environmental simulation, we can follow, in real-time, your product’s behavior with our data acquisition systems or perform fatigue testing while being in an ambient controlled environment. We are also equipped for performing tensile and compression strength within under these conditions.

Temperature and Humidity Cycling

Temperature and humidity cycling tests are widely used by a broad range of industries. Our customer base is composed of manufacturers in the following industries: automotive, furniture, electronics, aerospace, electrical, pharmaceutical, composite materials and many others. We can test to the following test methods: ASTM D3103, SAE J1455, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-883, MIL-STD 202, Telcordia GR-63 and many others.

We often undertake additional complementary material testing services when testing our clients’ products.

Our chambers can be used to condition a product prior to testing it under a different material test. In addition, our chambers can perform numerous accelerated aging tests such as temperature and humidity cycling tests.

Typical Experimental Parameters

Dimensions and number of samples: from small parts to 9 full pallet loads
Temperature profile: between -78 °C and +150 °C
Relative humidity profile: between 15% and 95 %
