A thermal shock caused by splash water / spray water is simulated. Two different test types can be used (see following two section → Thermal Shock Test with Iced Water and Submersion Test)Thermal Shock Test with Iced Water
Splash Water Test: the DUT is heated to T for the respective holding time. Afterwards cold splash water is applied to the DUT for 3 s. The DUT is splashed with water from one direction while being in as-installed position. If the DUT can be splashed from various directions in the vehicle, then these directions must be taken into account. If this is the case, a new DUT must be used for each direction. The width of the splash directed at the DUT must be greated than the width of the DUT. If the DUT of considerable size are splahed that prove too big for one nozzle, several nozzles must be arranged in a row to produce a line of splash impact on the DUT.

Equipment Dimensions for Splash Water Test Chamber

Heat the DUT (device under test) to a certain temperature and a specified time (hours) in the high temperature zone of the machine.Ice Water Splash Test Method:
Then spray the DUT with ice water for 3 seconds. If the DUT is splashed in only one direction on the vehicle, spray water only in that direction of the installation location.
If the equipment is exposed to water splashing in multiple directions on the vehicle, these directions shall be stated and a new DUT shall be tested in each direction.
The width of the splash is controlled to always be greater than the width of the DUT.
If the size of the DUT receiving the splash is much larger than a single sprinkler head, multiple sprinklers should be arranged to splash water on the DUT in a row.
Test Set-up for Splash Water Test ISO 16750-4

If the DUT is splashed in only one direction on the vehicle, spray water only in that direction of the installation location. If the equipment is splashed in multiple directions on the vehicle, these directions shall be stated, and a new DUT shall be tested for each direction.

Splash water test chamber is mainly suitable for ice water impact test on cars or auto parts, because the engine will heat up when the car is driving on the road, and if it is in the cold winter or north, there may be rain and snow weather, which will cause the road to freeze. Or thick snow, when the car is exposed to such a sudden drop in temperature, it will lead to flameout or even an accident. Therefore, in order to avoid such a situation, the car needs to do high temperature and high pressure rain test and ice water impact during the manufacturing process to increase the safety performance of the car. Generally, IPX9 test chamber is used for high temperature rain test, while ice water shock test chamber is used for ice and heat resistance test.

The splash water test chamber produced by Wewon Environmental Chambers Co., Ltd. is suitable for the ice water splash test of the product.Equipment Features
The shell is made of domestic steel plate, and the surface is sprayed with baking paint, which is beautiful and durable.
The inner test room is all made of SUS304 stainless steel plate to ensure long-term use without rust.
External Structure: Wewon’s ice water shock test chamber has a water tank, and the water used in the test can be recycled. The water storage tank is equipped with a water level sensor, which automatically controls the water inflow and has a low water level detection, which can effectively prevent the water pump from being damaged due to lack of water.

The ice-water impact test is suitable for product performance testing in the splashed areas on vehicles such as automotive exterior instruments and parts. In the process of driving, especially when driving on wet roads in winter, the impact of frozen mud water will occur. Cold water thermal shock test is to simulate the splash of cold water on hot systems/components through equipment. Ice water shock test chamber is mainly used to inspect the entire vehicle and its connectors, engines, brakes, lidars, chassis, transmissions, radiators, superchargers, boosters, automotive glass, automotive lamps, refrigeration compressors, etc. Accessories.
