thermal resistance test equipment

This unit is primarily marketed as an uncalibrated tool but I found that the Flir One give some very useful relative readings for testing and evaluating purposes.  As for absolute temperature readings there is still a little something to be desired. The unit's instructions are a little vague regarding measurement accuracies but the on screen spot reading is quite useful. ...

temperature forcing system

Testing at extreme temperatures requires considering several options. Testing at hot temperatures has its issues, however, testing at ultra cold temperatures - below -40 C in most cases requires the use of expensive and sometimes failure prone cascade refrigeration systems or alternately applying expendable cryogenic fluids such as liquid Nitrogen or liquid CO2....

thermal testing procedure

Liquid Nitrogen (L-N2), Liquid Carbon Dioxde L- CO2) and other cryogenic coolant coolants have potential risks but can easily be safely managed like many things in the lab. The effecitve and rapid cooling these fluids produce is a great convenience for thermal testing....

what is thermal performance

The question is often asked “what is the best temperature sensor for my temperature testing or environmental testing application?” The answers can vary a lot but the two main leaders of the pack are RTDs (Resistance Temperature Detector) followed by Thermocouples. If you are looking for the short answer of which is best, it is RTD's but here is a little more to the story...

Inherent in their performance capabilities are some risks, primarily the possiblity of exposing items (and people) to extreme temperatures resulting in damage, injury or combustion. When testing it is obviously important to make sure devices or samples to be tested are not exposed to temperatures outside the intended temperature range.  In cases such as flight or space hardware the cost of disqualified hardware, even if it was only briefly exposed to excessive cooling alone can be enormous....
