THERMAL 
CONDUCTIVITY TEST BED

A large laboratory scale, medium temperature test apparatus capable of measuring the thermal conductivity in non-isotropic materials, such as composites in both normal and tangential directions.

  • Test samples 3''x 3'' in cross section and up to 0.5'' in thickness

  • Hot side temperature adjustable between ambient and 550°C

  • Apparatus thermal stability is +/- 2.3% at 300°C

  • Thermal stability of the specimen surface is +/- 0.58% or +/- 1.5°C
