Proven Powerful and Practical for Altitude & Atmosphere Testing and Experimentation

Dual altitude & atmosphere testing system with independent control of each system

Dual Altitude Chamber System with independent control for each chamber.

Abbess Altitude and Atmosphere Testing Chambers are produced with an emphasis on careful coordination of the pumping equipment, the chamber properties and component and controls. Abbess has a highly evolved set of systems and tools specifically designed for recreating Altitude and Atmosphere conditions, Flight & Altitude Simulation, Low Earth Orbit, and Deep Space Test environments.

Like all systems designed and manufactured by Abbess Instruments, these systems can be custom engineered and produced to meet your specifications.

Thermal and Vacuum Chamber functionalities combine with profiling proportional control to give operators the tools they need to ramp both temperature and pressure and even customize gas mixtures for highly parallel chamber environments. Abbess Control Systems can be configured for basic function or customized for sophisticated and integrated tests, with customer specific PC/Touchscreen GUI and robust data-logging functionality.

Abbess Altitude & Atmosphere Testing Chambers are ideal for simulating the effects of high altitudes on products and packaging.

Top to bottom: Observation viewport, ASA flange, and Process Feedthru Gas/Fluid Swagelock Fittings
This Vacuum System allows items placed inside to be exposed to specific vacuum levels and rates of change. A Vacuum Cycle Controller (VCC) is used to automate control functions. The VCC enables system monitoring and control via touch screen buttons and graphic indications of sensor data registered and controlled by a PC with a user-specific Graphical User Interface (GUI).
Large Altitude Chamber
The tall size of the altitude chamber allows sample carts to be wheeled in with ease. By being able to load the chamber efficiently, it is easier to subject the product sample process to various altitudes. The operable clear acrylic port provides quick and easy access to a test system without needing to unclamp the larger door.
Advanced Altitude Simulation Package
Abbess Instruments has carefully designed three-levels of Altitude Chamber vacuum systems of varying complexity. Listed are standard packages with can be bought as a bundle, or can be customized to fit certain specifications.

This 24 inch cube is capable of process testing in both vacuum and positive pressure.
altitude testing
This Dual Altitude Chamber System has two separate chambers that function and are controlled independently. This system a facilitates the user to conduct and monitor separate or parallel tests.
Thermal Vacuum Altitude Test Chamber
The Abbess Thermal Vacuum Chamber System shown facilitates thermal and vacuum profiles consistent with altitudes to 200K feet.  Customer defined devices are supported with an array of 25 pin D-sub, BNC and SMA feedthrus.
Some of our customers find this vacuum chamber to be a practical size and shape for use in vacuum degassing liquids and soilds, EMI and altitude testing electronics, research, and development.
The Abbess Thermal Vacuum Chamber System shown allows Article(s) Under Test placed inside to be exposed to high vacuum (10e-8 range) as well as heated and cooled via conductive contact with the Gold Plated Copper Thermal Plate.
Inside of chamber
