Austest Laboratories is exceptionally well equipped for all types of climatic testing featuring:

  • Climatic facilities in NSW, VIC and SA
  • Twelve programmable environmental chambers:
    Austest Climatic Laboratory (Sydney)
    • Temperature range -85°C to +150°C
    • Humidity range 10% RH to 100% RH
    • Internal volume ranges from 0.3 m3 to 15 m(walk-in)
  • Cryogenic cooling chamber
    • Temperature range -185°C to +150°C with
    • Combined vibration/fatigue testing
  • Ultra-low humidity testing (2% RH – unique in Aust.)
  • Thermal shock testing
  • Combined climatic / altitude testing
  • Combined climatic / solar radiation testing
  • Combined climatic / vibration testing
  • Combined climatic / fatigue testing

    Combined (climatic+fatigue) testing – Automotive Harnesses

Austest Laboratories has unmatched experience and an in-depth understanding of temperature and humidity control. This enables us to tackle even the most complex climatic tests and on more than one occasion our team has been able to perform tests labelled as “impossible” by other laboratories.
