Testing services are available for virtually any product at any point in the design cycle. These services subject items to simulated environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, altitude, corrosive, shock, and vibration conditions. CSZ has recently added HALT & HASS testing to its service offering. Findings are used to improve design and/or production processes, to reduce after-sales service, and/or to ensure product quality and reliability. CSZ Testing provides confidential, accurate, and valid test results in 72 hours, or less.

Because products are exposed to a variety of conditions both in transport and in use, we've developed internal testing procedures that ensure our customers receive the most thorough and complete analysis of the testing processes administered.
Both of CSZ Testing laboratories are outfitted with the most current testing technologies, and are staffed by a team of on-site test technicians who coordinate a tailored, cost-effective solution to meet specific product development needs. Because of our relationship with Cincinnati Sub-Zero Products, our facilities are equipped with the latest technologies to provide customized and combined testing for our customers.
Testing equipment includes more than 35 environmental chambers, six vibration tables, and two corrosion chambers. For temperature and humidity tests, the company's advanced testing chambers accommodate an extreme range from -73 degrees Celsius (-99.4 degrees Fahrenheit) to 190 degrees Celsius (374 degrees Fahrenheit). Altitude testing simulates conditions up to 100,000 feet above sea level (40,000 feet when combined with temperature testing conditions), while thermal shock testing accommodates transferring product between temperature extremes very rapidly (in most cases less than 10 seconds weighing up to 600 pounds.
