TVAC testing

TVAC testing of flight hardware including bake-out.

We are also equipped with FTIR device for processing molecular contamination in accordance with ECSS-Q-ST-70-05C (direct or indirect method) and also device for processing particulate contamination per ECSS-Q-ST-70-50C.

All devices are situated in our ISO7 premise.

The chamber is equipped with TQCM. The bake-out is processed per ESA guidelines and per ECSS-Q-ST-70-01.

All control means like pressure gauge and thermocouples are regularly calibrated by independent body.

Available standards (e.g. ASTM, MIL): ECSS-Q-ST-70-05C, ECSS-Q-ST-70-50C, ECSS-Q-ST-70-01
