What is an Environmental test Chamber?

An environmental chamber is an enclosure used to test the effects of a variety of conditions on a product, component, part, or assembly. These highly technical pieces of equipment are capable of simulating the types of conditions a product may face while in use. The conditions in the chamber are controlled by a series of computer monitors that can rapidly change the conditions or slow them down to last for long periods of time. The stipulations and requirements for testing are predetermined to offer the most accurate data concerning a product’s performance in the types of conditions it would confront during its use. In most cases, the parameters for testing exceed the normal conditions of product use.

Different Types of Environmental Chamber

Environmental chambers come in a wide variety of sizes and designs in order to meet the changing demands of industry. In most cases, environmental chambers are designed to perform several tests in one cycle, which can be programmed to be completed individually or combined to occur all at once. The two most important types of tests are those regarding temperature and humidity, which are the top two reasons for product failure. Environmental chambers have the ability to create any type of weather conditions from freezing cold to tropical heat as well as harsh conditions and hazards.

Uses for Environmental Chambers

The purpose of an environmental chamber is to replicate the types of conditions that a product will confront when it is being used. Engineers, during the planning phase, attempt to predict the endurance and stability of their designs. Environmental chambers allow them to take their predictions and produce a facsimile of the conditions such that they can make adjustments and changes.

Canden Products – Stability Chamber


 The Canden pharmaceutical stability chambers(Q20 and Q40) meet International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines for drug substance and product storage testing. The units are ideal for drug stability studies, shelf-life testing for packaged products, and insect and other large-scale biological research.

·       Chambers feature 18°C to 60°C temperature range that can be set in 0.1°C increments

·       Humidity range includes 20% to 90%.

·       Directed Airflow System distributes airflow uniformly throughout the chamber

Ideal for drug stability studies, shelf-life testing for packaged products, and insect and other large-scale biological research, our environmental chambers provide a stable environment for controlled temperature storage. Their rugged construction and durable shelving for long life will create the perfect fit for your applications.

Canden stability chambers are designed to satisfy demanding environmental testing requirements with exceptional temperature and humidity control, while providing reliable and efficient solutions for a variety of stability testing applications.

Temperature control method: Canden pharmaceutical stability chambers are built on thermoelectric cooling systems offer an average life of 20+  years of reliable, efficient operation. Canden offers tight temperature control over a range from +18°C to +60°C.


Humidity Method: Canden stability chambers uses air pressured ultrasonic humidification system which provides efficient and precision in humidity control. The chamber cooling system provides a constant dehumidification effect, with the humidifier injecting water vapor instantaneously into the chamber at less than 12% the energy usage of traditional steam generators. Desiccant dehumidification systems are also available for low humidity application. We use regenerative desiccant column that can be recharged for its entire lifecycle.
