Presentation

Environmental testing sustainability – new regulations – what to know

Simulated environmental testing is critical because it can determine a product’s failure point. With recent international agreements and domestic regulations, the need for a reduced carbon footprint is greater than ever. This presentation will provide essential items to consider when purchasing and operating an environmental simulation test chamber, as well as illustrate why energy efficiency and refrigerant selection are crucial for long-term, restriction-free testing. The presentation will also review the EPA AIM Act which took effect in January 2022 and has phasedown requirements in place for certain refrigerants. An important presentation for all test, product and production engineers and managers.
