Safety of users and durability are two top concerns when it comes to manufacturing many products. And to ensure that something meets both standards, one needs to test the products’ limits first.
Have you ever wondered, as a consumer, how companies know the upper limits of their products? Most of them undergo rigorous testing through the use of an environmental chamber and other sophisticated technologies that can measure and detect a certain material or product’s durability and reliability.
What factors do most companies test for, and what tools are used to measure an object’s limitations? Here is a look at certain systems and tools that we use to measure them.
Pressure refers to the amount of force, weight, or friction that objects go through. At normal use, a safe object should be able to keep its shape and perform its functions without posing a threat to the users. Hydrostatic pressure testing equipment can test an object’s reaction to pressure.
High humidity can easily destroy certain products. How can we test for an object’s resistance to it? The Highly Accelerated Stress Test chamber, or HAST system, is a chamber that reduces the time it takes to test humidity resistance.
Similar yet related to humidity tests, moisture testing is important for objects exposed to elements like rain or snow. You’ll need a moisture meter to keep track of an object during the testing process.
Very few objects are hardy enough to withstand high temperatures. Thankfully, testing an object’s reaction to heat is easy with a High Temperature Reverse Bias evaluation system, or an HTRB system for short. T can measure behaviour under high heat and high temperatures.
