Thermal shock testing also called as temperature shock testing or temperature cycling. In this testing products is exposed to alternating low and high temperatures to accelerate failures, caused by repeated temperature variations during normal condition of use.
This test is carried out to simulate the test condition in which product face severe temperature change in short period of time. This differential expansion affects the product characteristics and thermal shock test understand the product behaviour on those condition. URS lab have test facility for thermal shock test in wide range of temperature condition.
The transition between temperature extremes occurs very rapidly during thermal shock testing, greater than 15 °C per minute. Alternatively, temperature cycle testing uses slower rates of change between high and low temperatures.
Applicable standards for this test are IS 9000(Part14/Sec 1) and IEC 60068-2-14.
URS have state of art test facility for Thermal Shock Test Comprising conditioning chamber of different size with variable temperature and ramp rate.
