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. 


Altitude testing and simulation 

For projects with more complex or custom requirements, our product qualification laboratories can carry out altitude testing and combined environmental simulation under a variety of conditions. 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. 


Element’s altitude testing capabilities

Our altitude testing capabilities include:

  • Altitude range of -2,000 to 120,000 feet
  • Temperature range of -70° - 140° C
  • Combined environmental simulation

Our expert knowledge and high capacity enable to us to deliver accurate, reliable results for a wide variety of project types.
