TF4

Turbid Sand Silt Testing

  • Helium (Sustained Leak Rate): 4 single channel transducer @ 0-10 VDC (-15 psi to 85 psi)
  • Helium Mass Spectrometer: Alcatel Model ASM 180T, Detecting leaks as small as the 10-11 atm.cc/s, used in the testing of penetrators (as per chamber designed for penetrator, also suitable for Hermetic testing)

TF7

Helium Mass Spectrometer

  • Environmental Chamber: LR Environmental Equipment Co, Sun 25 PSI LN2 (-70 to +315 degree C) 22″ x 22″ x 22″. Model EC16. Coolant/pressure LN2 @ 25 psi

Environmental Chamber

  • Mechanical Shock and Vibration Testing:
  • Environmental Stress Screening – (ESS) testing equipment: UNHOLTZ Dickie Corp. Model MA250D-206. ESS/Vibration: Optical attenuation is monitored continuously during the application of a vibration sequence in the vertical axis that is a transport/handling like spectrum. (20-80 hz @ 3db per octave rise, 80-350 hz @ .04g2/hz, 350-2000 hz@ 3db per octave rolloff).
