Environmental Testing

The environmental chambers and conditioning equipment at the APV Test Centre can take your product to its extremes.  Accelerated lifecycle testing can help ensure against quality concerns and provide confidence of your product's ongoing durability. Products incorporating a wide range of materials, including plastics, metals and electronic components, can benefit from the added certainty that environmental testing provides.

APV Test Centre has various environmental chambers ranging in size (see full details of chambers below).  A walk-in-chamber is also available that allows large objects to be subjected to extreme temperature.  APV Test Centre can test the corrosion resistance of your product and has capability to perform Vibration Testing under temperature and humidity.  Accelerated life testing enables faults and potential modes of failure to be discovered in a short amount of time, and assists in the prediction of service life and maintenance intervals for a product.
