FTV (Fast Thermal Vacuum)

A special thermal vacuum cycling facility was developed to allow quick cycling between a hot compartment (up to 600ºC), and a cold compartment (down to –240ºC). This facility automatically moves the test specimen between the two compartments to achieve fast thermal cycling. The usable volume is of 650 X 500 x 350 mm.
