View Full Version : Chamber Size Reduction to improve efficeincy

If I reduce the test chamber size by placing some insulating material blocks blocks will it improve the efficiency; ie, will the temp reduction or heating rate improve?

Probably not by as much as you think...

The air in your test chamber will in itself have little thermal mass, so reducing the volume will by itself not reduce the load by any measurable amount.
Further more, the test chambers I worked on have all had very good insulation to start with, it is therefore unlikely that adding insulation will help to prevent any measurable amount of heat transfer.

Without knowing what you want to achieve or what kit you got to start with, the best advice I can give you is to speak to the manufacturer and see what solution they suggest.
