The function of the thermal vacuum chamber inside the SSDTL clean room is to simulate the vacuum and temperature of the environment that a spacecraft will be exposed in space. Under very low pressure levels (10-5 Pascal), created temperature scenarios help to analyze the strength, resistance and endurance limits of tested model.
Properties of the Thermal Vacuum Chamber:
• 350 lt volume
• 10–5 Pascal pressure
• -60 °C – 125°C temperature range
• 1 degree/sec. temperature control
