In Element's altitude testing laboratories, test engineers simulate high and low altitude, temperature, and other in-flight conditions to provide comprehensive performance data to manufacturers and designers of parts and components for a range of industries.
High altitude simulation testing provides insight about the integrity and durability of products that frequently operate in elevated conditions. Our labs can simulate altitudes up to 120,000 feet for a wide range of product types. In addition to aviation components, Element’s altitude testing services evaluate equipment for air transport, high altitude installations, and more.
For projects with more complex or custom requirements, we support combined altitude testing and environmental simulations. As a single-source environmental testing provider, we can combine altitude, pressure and temperature into a single test program, cutting down on cost and time-to-market.
