Test Facilities

CEPEDA regularly conducts acceptance, qualification, and research testing on life support equipment. We maintain fully-functioning environmental and high-pressure air test facilities capable of the following:

  • Atmospheric air @ 700+ CFM with variable temperature and humidity
  • Synthetic atmospheres with known levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2)
  • Chilled water with flowrates up to 20 GPM and temperatures as low as 45°F
  • Electrical power, 440V, 3 phase
  • Monitoring of CO2, H2, and carbon monoxide (CO) levels
  • High-pressure air up to 5000 PSI at 150 SCFM
  • Airborne sound measurements per MIL-STD-740-1
  • Structureborne vibratory measurements per MIL-STD-740-2
  • Data acquisition system for automated collection of pressures, temperatures, flow rates, and dew points

Test Equipment

CEPEDA maintains a stable of standard test equipment, calibrated per ISO 10012 and MIL-STD-45662A, including:

  • Flow meters
  • Pressure transducers and gages
  • Temperature transducers and gages
  • Gas analyzers
  • Hygrometers
  • Data acquisition systems
  • Sound and vibration analysis systems
  • Electrical test instruments
  • Brinell hardness tester

Testing Support

CEPEDA’s engineering team also has experience qualifying hardware through stringent Navy first article tests including operational, environmental shock and vibration, and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
