HAST (Highly Accelerated Stress Test) reduces the time it takes to complete humidity testing by increasing temperatures above 100°C and increasing the atmospheric pressure. Normal humidity tests can be completed in days, not weeks while maintaining the same failure mechanisms.
HAST Equipment Capabilities:
- Maximum temperature of 160°C (320°F)
- Controlled humidity from 50% to 100%
- Maximum pressure of 56 psig
- Chamber interior of 14.4 inches diameter x 24 inches long
