Testing Made Easy With Thermal Vacuum (Space) Chambers
Tenney thermal vacuum chambers or space chambers are designed to simulate various types of pressure and altitude conditions. These thermal vacuum chambers are ideal for testing products used in space travel, satellites and other equipment for the space industry. The Tenney space test chamber designs vary from 1.0-226ft3 or more, large enough to accommodate almost any piece of equipment. They offer a temperature range of -184°C to +150°C (-300°F to +302°F) and a tolerance of ±1.0°C after stabilization. For vacuum simulation a site level to 1 x 10-7 Torr is achievable, and the chamber can attain 5.0 x 10-6 Torr within four hours if required.
Tenney space chambers are constructed with a stainless-steel vacuum vessel and temperature-conditioned internal platen and shroud to simulate outer-space conditions. The chamber, machinery and instrumentation are manufactured as one unit and can meet the OSHA, NEC and ASME Code for Unfired Pressure Vessels. Safety interlocks and features are provided for the space chambers and operating personnel.
Tenney offers mechanical or liquid-nitrogen fluid-cooling systems as well as gaseous-nitrogen recirculating with an LN2-flooded system to meet the extreme temperature ranges required in modern space-vehicle and components testing. Vacuum system design capabilities range from oil-sealed or dry-style roughing pumps to cryopump or turbomolecular ultra-high-vacuum pumping systems depending on the customer’s specific requirements.
