Tri State Hydraulics



Environmental Aging/Life

Clark's Environmental Lab can test equipment at different temperature and humidity environments to comply with IEEE 323 or any other commercial/military standards (Methods 501.1, 502.1 and 507.1 of MIL-STD-810 and Method 102A of MIL-STD-202D). Environmental chambers of different sizes, including walk-in rooms, are available to perform test programs. Temperature range of +200°F to -200°F and relative humidity range of 40% to 100% can be maintained.
