Thermal shock testing
Comprised of two chambers - one hot (up to +150°C) and one cold (-65°C) - a thermal shock testing facility needs to be equipped to handle products with care and move them rapidly from one chamber to the other.
The transfer time corresponds to the time it takes for the car to move from one chamber to the other.
The Emitech Group has 8 thermal shock facilities.
During the product certification process, thermal shock tests can reveal specific risks of failure: mechanical and electrical risks caused by deformation by water or ice, component deformation, fissures, insulation breaches, changes to the physical properties of components etc.

The importance of monitoring and connected equipment
Throughout the testing process, whether it takes a few minutes or a few months, the equipment being tested will be constantly monitored: thermocoupling, voltage, current, rotation speed, micro-power cuts etc.
