A Top Test Chamber Company

EMC/EMI Test Chambers - Product Testing Chambers - Value Added Services

At Russells, we want to be regarded by our customers as the premier provider of environmental control and product testing chamber solutions in the world.
 

Test system for the Navy at Pearl Harbor.  We produced a refrigeration system for a mini-submarine and this is the test tank that simulates the underwater temperature and current.  It is operated via our VS-1 controller.

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing
As an added option to our chambers, we offer the ability to test for electromagnetic compatibility. Electromagnetic interference (EMI), also called radio frequency interference or RFI, is usually an unwanted disturbance caused by electromagnetic radiation from equipment or other electrical circuits in the same environment. Compatibility is achieved by addressing both emission and susceptibility issues by 'quieting' the sources of interference, making the coupling path between source and system less efficient.


Preventive Maintenance
Your product testing chamber can only be of value to you if it is in good running condition. Utilizing Russells Technical Products preventive maintenance gives you the assurance that your test equipment will be ready to perform to specification when you need it - day after day, year after year.

Preventive maintenance is performed by one of our factory-trained field service engineers. During each visit, all electrical components, refrigeration components, and other equipment and systems will be thoroughly inspected. Where possible, routine minor adjustments will be made to return your equipment to top running condition as a part of this service. Upon completion of the inspection, our service technician will provide you with a detailed recommendation of any additional repairs that may be needed.

  • New Concept Engineering
    You can build on our generations of experience by working with us to help you invent valuable new environment testing or refrigeration solutions. Our expertise can be immediately put to use creating solutions that solve your unique applications problems within your budget. These innovative new products can then be put to work within your facilities, often providing you with immediate competitive advantages. Sometimes, these new solutions even become part of our customer's product lines. In either case, we are then ready to manufacture the new products on demand.

    Regardless of how you envision the 'new concept' working for you, we have developed a methodology for co-development that is second to none in our industry. Our top performing and most experienced people will focus on your project. The Russells team has developed 'new concepts' so often, that you'll be able to benefit from the tried and true methods we have honed over the decades from managing this creative process.

    So if there isn't already a 'pre-engineered' or 'custom equipment' line listed on our web site that completely satisfies your application needs, this is the service for you.
