Walk-In/Drive-In Solid Construction Temperature/Humidity Chambers

Russells Technical Products W-Series welded construction walk-in/drive-in chambers are ideal for high temperature and high humidity simulation. Their solid, one piece construction allows for rapid thermal change rates, ultra low temperature cooling, and prolonged soaks at extreme temperatures. With a wide variety of plenum options and configurations, our W-Series test chambers can be designed to meet your exact specifications.

About Solid Construction Walk-in Temperature/Humidity Chambers

Moisture buildup can be destructive to products, especially electronics, causing corrosion and oxidation. Russells’ solid construction W-Series temperature and humidity test chambers afford maximum durability and performance for your most demanding simulation test requirements.
