Do you know how your materials or equipment will perform over a
wide range of temperature and humidity or how they
will react to thermal shock?
Mead Testing can help you answer
these questions and many more using our extensive expertise in
environmental and climatic testing. Our laboratories are well
equipped with a range of temperature and humidity controlled
cabinets, including a walk in chamber,
and a thermal shock machine. Services are available for tests specified
in standards for qualification, approval and acceptance purposes for example BSI, IEC, IPC, DEF, ASTM, DIN.
In addition, we are happy to carry out tests to your own
specification, which you may wish to deploy for selection of
materials or development of designs or manufacturing processes.
Our climatic chambers can control the air temperature over
the range from -70C to 180C and achieve relative humidity of
up to 97%RH. Temperature ramp rates are typically 0.5C
per minute to 1C per minute but rates of up to 5C per minute are available in some cabinets. These
cabinets provide a cost effective solution for long term storage
tests. They are routinely used to assess the integrity of
transport packaging and to monitor the operation of equipment
under environmental stress.
Our walk in chamber can accommodate full height
telecommunications racks and is used extensively for thermal
Corrosion products on a circuit
board after high humidity testing
