Thermal Stress Chamber for Main Frame Computers

      A movable chamber encloses a computer (or any type of
equipment) to heat it for thermal stress testing.

      The chamber is equipped with numerous access doors to allow key
areas of the equipment inside the chamber to be reached. The chamber
is on casters so that the equipment inside can remain stationary due
to equipment power and cooling connections which can restrict
movement.

      Clearance between the bottom of the frame and the floor is
baffled with bristle brush to minimize air leakage.  The bristle
moves away from obstructions such as floor ramps.

      Air handling equipment mounted on the top of the chamber
regulates temperature with heaters, recirculating blower, fresh air
damper and digital controller.
