TSSL series air/liquid shock test devices

CTS environmental simulation – for reliable simulation when immersed in water

The CTS air/liquid thermal shock test units are especially designed for immersion testing in line with standards such as ISO 16750-4 or LV 124. The devices consist of 2 temperature zones: the hot chamber with air temperatures of up to +150°C and a cold zone consisting of a liquid cooling bath with water temperatures of up to 0°C. By means of the vertical hoisting mechanism, used with or without a basket, the test items are then moved from one temperature zone to the other and thus subjected to a maximum temperature shock.

This test is intended to simulate the stress on components and parts when immersed in water. The test is carried out, among other things, as a leak test after exposure to a thermal shock and thus serves to ensure that heated parts and components function in the event of immediate cooling by immersion and submersion.

Test volume in litres

Standard devices with 40 – 52 l and a basket volume of 96 l and special devices

Immersion medium

Water (can be used to a minimum level of +5°C)
Salt water (5% brine)

Temperature ranges

Hot chamber: from +40 °C to +150 °C, optionally up to +180°C
Cold chamber: from 0 °C to +25 °C , optionally higher temperatures possible
