THERMAL VACUUM CHAMBERS
TVC LARGE/ TVC MEDIUM
The Houwteq thermal test facilities include a large thermal vacuum chamber and a medium thermal vacuum chamber.
The large thermal vacuum chamber is ideally suited for thermal testing on satellite level. The satellite is mounted onto a trolley that rolls into the chamber. A thermal shroud and vacuum pump system is used to create a thermal environment similar to what the satellite will experience in space.
The medium thermal vacuum chamber is better suited for thermal testing on component level. The horizontal chamber contains a thermal shroud and thermal plate. This allows great flexibility in testing conditions thus ensuring that components can be tested at any thermal environment.
