Altitude testing is a requirement for most devices that are to be transported or to be functional at height. Knowing a units’ response to a sudden or gradual change in pressure is critical to many devices survival, and with air transport being a common method of delivery, it is an increasingly common enviroment. Compliance with various standards for altitude is very important; especially as the resultant effects of non-compliance has great destructive potential.
Alphatech have recently revamped his altitude test chamber with the addition of port-hole access, allowing for units to remain operational during the test. With a set up than can simulate altitudes of up to 70,000 feet we are able to comply with various standards, from the UN battery transportation to MIL-STD 810.
Our altitude capabilities include testing to 70,000 ft equivalent for non-operational test items.
