Thermal Vacuum Chamber (TVC)

The thermal vacuum chambers are equipment mainly used to simulate environmental space conditions. The most common applications of a Thermal Vacuum Chamber (TVC) are related to the tests of satellite performance, control of the thermal cycle and testing of components, subsystems, and complete satellites in a fully controlled environment. The tests are able to accurately reproduce the conditions of the space through the simultaneous control of two environmental parameters: Pressure and Temperature.
