CSZ Intros Compact Thermal Shock Chambers
Dual-chamber thermal shock cabinet.
Cincinnati, OH — Cincinnati Sub-Zero (CSZ) is introducing a new line of vertical thermal shock chambers. These state-of-the-art products reportedly combine high performance, small footprint, and an array of standard features to offer exceptional value. The vertical air-to-air testing chamber uses customized hot- and cold-temperature settings to detect product stress defects before going to market, improving product reliability and customer confidence.

These chambers incorporate a compact design, air-to-air, chamber with distinct "hot" and "cold" zones for thermal shock testing. The hot zone has a temperature range of 70 to 210°C and the cold zone has a temperature range of -75 to +190°C. The chamber may also be operated as an independent thermal cycling chamber — possible because of having two chambers in one system. The chamber line offers interior workspace of 1-ft3, 3-ft3, and 9-ft3 of workspace, maximizing testing space while minimizing demands for storage and use space.

Sophisticated programming, communication, and other operational features are standard, enabling superior performance in all models. Standard features include the CSZ EZT-560i touch-screen controller, providing the ability to control each chamber separately, or together, for thermal-shock operation. This CSZ-exclusive controller incorporates data logging, data-file access via USB-compatible memory stick, Ethernet control and monitoring, alarm notification via email or phone text message, data-file backup, and full-system security for the ultimate in test-chamber control.

Additional standard features include emergency-power switch, traveling cable port, casters, and leveling legs. The product transfer carriage provides smooth, steady conveyance and does not require the compressed air supply needed for pneumatic transfer mechanisms. Testing functionality meets a variety of commercial and military-grade specifications.
