Extreme Temperature Testing

WESTEST operates two Extreme Temperature Environmental Chambers that can generate temperatures ranging from -50º C to +60º C for various tests.

 

The Exreme Temperature Environmental Chambers make it possible to simulate extreme weather conditions and the effects on components or vehicle and equipment structures. WESTEST can set up tests to meet the strict requirements of a wide range of testing organizations. This ability assists clients ensure the safety and durability of their vehicles/equipment or components. Following test procedures, a comprehensive report is prepared for the client outlining the types of tests done, the data acquired, and analyses conducted.

WESTEST Advantage 

 

     

  • Aiding in the design process, data collected at temperature extremes can prove useful to the designer during the product development cycle. Critical design information helps minimize machine production costs as well as warranty costs.
  •  

  • Information at various levels is available – you get the detail you need at minimum cost.
  •  

  • Computerized analysis allows the set-up of laboratory testing to accurately simulate field conditions.
  •  

  • Designs based on measured values are more accurate than those based on assumptions.
  •  

  • Minimized field testing reduces costs.
  •
