Thermal Vacuum /Altitude Chamber

Our Space department’s Thermal Vacuum laboratory carries out research on aerospace-related thermal issues. The laboratory is equipped with various data acquisition /logging systems for different types of temperature and vacu-um/pressure sensors, and 50 Hz infrared camera.

Furthermore, single-phase and two-phase liquid/vapor heat transport systems can be developed and tested. To this end, a range of Coriolis mass flow meters, pumps, tubing and fittings are available. Fluid properties such as contact angle, surface tension and density can be measured with dedicated equipment.
