We can also provide rapid decompression testing (explosive decompression)—from extreme altitudes to earth in less than a second.
Rapid Decompression testing provides evaluation of equipment installed in pressurized areas of aircraft that must function during and after emergency descent. Failures determined during decompression testing are: electrical malfunction, leakage, deformation, rupture, explosion of (gasket sealed) containers, or a change in physical properties of low-density materials. EA’s decompression vessel(s) can be evacuated to a pressure of 50,000 feet. Complete decompression can take place in less than 0.1 seconds to the flight height equivalent pressure. Decompression test profiles can be customized to a decompression time of only 0.05 seconds. The maximum, simulated altitude is 100,000 feet.
