DVT Environmental Testing Labs Services

DVT Labs is proud to serve the San Francisco Bay Area with free pickup and delivery for the following environmental test services:

Temperature Testing

DVT Labs temperature testing uses cycling to simulate the conditions that a product exhibits when exposed to varying temperature extremes. Temperature and Humidity testing evaluates a products’ vulnerability to temperature and relative humidity exposure levels.

Temperature Humidity Test

The purpose of this method is to determine the resistance of materiel to the effects of a warm, humid atmosphere. This method applies to materiel that is likely to be stored or deployed in a warm, humid environment; an environment in which high levels of humidity occurs; or to provide an indication of potential problems associated with humidity.

Humidity has physical and chemical effects on materiel; the temperature and humidity variations can also trigger condensation.

Salt Fog Test

DVT Labs uses the salt fog method to determine the effectiveness of protective coatings and finishes on materials. It may also be applied to determine the effects of salt deposits on the physical and electrical aspects of materiel. This method is used for screening purposes only to evaluate the effectiveness and quality of protective coatings and finishes on materiel and material coupons, and to locate potential problem areas, quality control deficiencies, design flaws, etc., in a relatively short period of time. In general, this method to materiel is used when products will experience significant exposure to high levels of salt in the atmosphere.

Mechanical Vibration Testing

DVT Labs mechanical vibration testing simulates the conditions that a product or structure might face during its lifetime and helps to expose possible weakness.

Package Drop Test

A package drop test is a simulation of a package holding products that might experience difficulty during handling and transportation. It is transportation simulation: essential for the safety of products and components. Drop testing is done to ensure that a product stays in its original condition during possible exposure to impacts from manufacturing to customer.

Electro Static Testing

This test’s purpose is to test the product for the effect a charge accumulated on the human body causes ESD discharge that might damage electronics and cause failures.

Mechanical Shock Test

DVT labs mechanical shock test studies the product for the effect of bumps impacts and drops to ensure your product will survive and continue to operate normally. If necessary, recommendations are offered to improve product reliability.

Altitude Testing

Altitude Testing simulates the operation or shipment of a product at different altitudes. The test simulates the air pressure changes that can be experienced at various elevation levels without any changes to the product performance, integrity, and durability.

Acoustic Testing

DVT Labs uses this testing method to determine the acoustic characteristics of your products. Acoustic Testing evaluates the acoustic noise generated by products to reduce the impact of noise emittance on surrounding areas.

UV Testing

Products and components are subjected to ultraviolet exposure in a controlled environment; a solar simulator is used to create ultraviolet radiation and simulate years of exposure to UV. DVT Labs UV Testing evaluates how a material will withstand the damaging effects of ultraviolet exposure that can cause significant changes to the properties and coating.

Abrasive testing

Abrasive testing determines the resistance of materials and structures to abrasion. This helps a manufacturer produce high-quality products with a long lifespan and ensures a quality product that is free from defects. The machine rolls the mechanical cylinder with an attached brush (or sandpaper, sponge, etc.) over the surface of the material being tested and demonstrates the ability of resistance of a painted surface or labels.

Tumble Testing

Purpose: Ensure product resistance to repeated free fall impacts to evaluate products and components’ ability to resist breakage resulting from drops encountered during use or handling. DVT Labs Tumble Testing is a highly effective test to evaluate the product’s ability to survive the actual bumps and drops it will experience in life.

MTBF Prediction Test

MTBF is the abbreviated term for Mean Time between Failures; it is a calculation used to predict the time between failures and determine the probability of survival and failure rate of products or components.

Thermal Shock Testing

DVT Labs thermal shock testing is performed to determine the effect on electronic components and the resistance of the product or component to withstand the sudden changes in temperature.

DVT labs always aims to accommodate you with superior customer service at the most competitive prices. With all this AND free pickup and delivery in the Bay Area, DVT Labs is the clearly best product testing lab for all your environmental testing requirements.
