Thermal tests

Is the cold chain packaging solution adapted to your specific logistic constraints?

Testing and qualification of the insulated packaging allows the thermal performance and reliability of the packaging to be tested under real conditions. When a cold chain packaging solution is qualified by Ater Métrologie, a contradictory qualification file is given to you: it proves that the packaging complies with the requirements of the health authorities.

For more than 20 years, the thermal testing centre Ater Métrologie has been testing, analysing and validating, according to precise specifications, many industrial products in the automotive, construction, pharmaceutical, railway or cosmetics industries...

Why choosing Ater Métrologie?

  • Secure your shipments with tested and qualified cold chain packaging solutions,
     
  • Meet the requirements of standards through tests in accordance with the regulations in force,
     
  • Benefit from expert advice and analysis on thermal issues,
     
  • Benefit from a great reactivity of execution, at competitive rates.

Thermal testing and measurement services

Thermal and climatic tests

These tests allow you to test the resistance and functioning of your products under specific temperature and humidity conditions. Ater Métrologie has a range of high-performance chambers for carrying out these tests.

  • Chamber volume: 1 to 170 m3
  • Temperature range: -80 °C / +180 °C
  • Homogeneity: +/-1 °C
  • Humidity: 10 to 98%.

Thermal Conductivity

Measuring thermal conductivity helps to characterize a material's ability to conduct heat. The thermal conductivity coefficient is an indicator of the performance of your insulating materials and can help you choose the most suitable one.
Ater Métrologie is able to measure this coefficient under the following experimental conditions:

  • Maximum sample size: 300 x 300 x 100 mm
  • Test temperature range: -10 °C/+75 °C
  • Coefficient range measured: 0.005 / 0.35 W/m.K

Thermal simulation

The multiplication of tests can be an expensive operation, especially in the development phase. The thermal simulation allows you to orient your technological choices and optimize your tests.
Ater Métrologie is equipped with a powerful simulation tool adapted to the development of systems integrating phase change materials. This tool will allow you to determine the performance of your system by varying the temperature conditions and to make a risk assessment.

Differential scanning calorimetry

The calorimetric study of a material allows to evaluate the energetic phenomena linked to its temperature evolution. This technique makes it possible to observe phenomena such as glass transition or phase change. It also characterizes the physical quantities associated with these phenomena (glass transition temperature, melting temperature, specific heat, etc.). A qualitative study of the results also makes it possible to evaluate the stability of the materials, their purity or their level of cross-linking.
Ater Métrologie has the means to evaluate these characteristics.

  • Temperature range: from - 70 °C to + 600 °C
  • Enthalpy accuracy: < 1%.
  • Resolution: 0.25 μV
