Cascade TEK thermal shock testing

Have a product that is going to experience extreme thermal conditions? Cascade TEK's thermal shock chambers have the ability to move very rapidly from hot to cold and vice versa, so you can see just how your parts and components will stand up to extreme temperature fluctuations (like those experienced by electronics and hardware found in Aerospace and other high-tech or industrial industries).
