Description of Safety Features
Description of Safety Features
On each unit, there are a number of features, which help to ensure safe operation. These
features are:
❏ Temperature High/Low Limit Control:
A user-programmable limit control is provided as an independent measure of safety
against thermal runaway (hot or cold), which could occur from, but not limited to, the
following:
Programming error
Primary controller failure
Thermocouple breakage
Heater SSR failure
Circulation blower failure
The limit control is wired into the control devices to provide a totally independent safety
system. A separate thermocouple is provided for the limit control and located inside the
air plenum. If this device has reached an alarm condition, the system must be reset by
pressing the “Chamber Reset” button on the control console.
WARNING!:
The alarm set point of this device should never be set higher
than +200°C or lower than –80°C as these are the
maximum design temperature of the system.
It is important to note that this safety controller does not protect from a possible failure of
the cooling solenoid valve. It is possible for this valve to fail and allow liquid nitrogen to
continue flowing into the chamber, resulting in extremely cold temperatures. As a result,
Chart recommends changing the solenoid valve on a regular basis as a preventative
maintenance measure against such occurrences.

Features
Features
❏ Temperature Control System:
Heating is accomplished with resistive electric elements, while cooling is accomplished
by blowing liquid nitrogen into the chamber. The liquid nitrogen is vaporized through
nozzles and the cold vapor is circulated over the products in the chamber so that liquid
nitrogen does not touch the product under test. Electric heaters are carefully selected and
arranged to provide extremely rapid rates of temperature change without exceeding safe
design limits of heat elements. The heaters and nitrogen nozzles are located in the air
conditioning plenum.
CAUTION: Although the chamber is designed to use very small amounts of liquid
nitrogen, the resulting nitrogen gas is vented out of the chamber. It is
important to monitor the oxygen levels in the working environment around
the chamber to ensure safe operating conditions.
The liquid nitrogen control is done by a solenoid valve. The solenoid valve is chosen for
its compact size and high reliability. The temperature controller tells the solenoid valve
when to open based on the temperature inside the chamber.

❏ Air Circulation Blower:
The chamber is equipped with a non-corrosive blower wheel, which provides air
circulation to distribute temperature controlled air and minimize thermal enclosure
temperature gradients. Baffles provide output air openings to direct the air flow out of the
duct and into the workspace of the chamber. The blower is located in the air
conditioning plenum. The blower draws air flow across the heater and nitrogen nozzle
and out into the workspace of the chamber.
❑ Instruments:
Temperature is controlled by a Watlow Series 96 temperature controller. The input to the
temperature controller is a type T thermocouple. The control thermocouple is mounted in

❏ Temperature Safety Controller
A temperature Hi/Lo limit control protects the chamber against thermal runaway due to a
primary controller fault or control device failure. The input to the Hi/Lo limit control is a
type T thermocouple. The thermocouple is mounted in the air-flow plenum and is not
directly visible. The temperature safety controller is located inside the control box and is
not to be adjusted by the operator.

❏ Location
The location of the chamber should be chosen with a few items in mind:
• The left side of the chamber has an access port, which allows passing power and
data acquisition wires into the chamber and connecting to the device under test.
• The top side of the chamber has the control box. For safety and service reasons,
this side must be kept clear at least three feet from the control box door.
• The front of the chamber contains the door. Enough room should be left so the
door can swing fully open for ease of loading test items in and out of the chamber.
• The rear of the chamber contains the blower motor assembly. Space should be
left to allow a service technician to access this assembly. Also note that the
blower assembly has an extended shaft that protrudes through the chamber wall
and connects to the blower wheel. Should the blower assembly ever need to be
removed from the chamber, the blower will need to be able to slide back far
enough to get the shaft back out of the chamber wall.
• The chamber weighs approximately 200 pounds, if it is going to be placed on a
surface, be sure the surface can support the weight safely.
❏ Electrical Power Hook-Up
The electrical power needs to be connected from above and into the back of the control
box. A large hole is provided in the back of the control console for the entrance of the
power wires. The power specs are given in the Specs section of this manual. It is
extremely important to run a properly sized ground wire. It is often beneficial to provide
a ground wire that is actually larger than conventional standards. Doing so may aid in
reducing any electrical noise problems. When running power there should be at least one
to two feet of flexible conduit before the chamber connection to leave room for
expansion and contraction of the floor as well as allow for slight variances in chamber
placement. If the chamber uses the cord/plug supplied by Chart, that will make
connecting power much simpler. If the customer does not wish to use the cord/plug
assembly, it is possible to run wires directly into the control box and terminate at the
same points as the cord/plug assembly did.
All power needed to operate the chamber is generated/supplied from the main control
box. Only one main power supply is needed to operate the chamber. The power of the
control box does not have any provisions for powering any devices under test.
After the installation is complete, it is important to check the rotational direction of the
blower. If the fans are not rotating in the proper direction, the heaters will not get
sufficient air flow and cause premature burn-out and failure of the heater elements. If the
fans are not rotating in the proper direction, switch two of the power leads to the blower,
as this should change the rotational direction. Proper rotational direction will provide air

suction into the blower in the back wall of the chamber and discharge from the top of the
chamber.
❏ Liquid Nitrogen Plumbing
Along with the electrical power, bring in the LN2 service from the top or the back of the
chamber for easy access around the chamber. The connection point is at the solenoid
valve on the back wall of the chamber. The nitrogen then flows through the valve and
then enters the chamber to supply liquid nitrogen to the nozzle inside the plenum. The
location of the liquid nitrogen inlet is dimensioned on the O&D drawing at the end of this
manual.

Gaseous nitrogen
exhaust connection.
A line relief valve should be installed between the LN2 connection on the chamber (the
solenoid valve) and the first manual shut-off valve upstream from this connection in the
nitrogen pipe system. This relief valve should be rated at a pressure less than 175 psig,
or the lowest pressure rated component in the system. This relief valve is not included
with the system and should be taken care of at installation.
❏ Exhaust Gas Plumbing
The exhaust gas of the chamber should be plumbed to the outside of the building. No
fans or restrictions should be placed in this line. Any fans or restrictions will decrease
system performance.
It is important to vent the system to the outside of the building for safety reasons. If the
system is not vented to the outside of the building, there is a risk of an oxygen-depleted
atmosphere in the area surrounding the chamber.
The vent piping should also be well insulated to prevent moisture present in the air from
condensing/freezing on the outside surface of the exhaust pipe. The exit of the exhaust
piping should be configured to prevent any water, rain, etc from flowing back into the
chamber’s exhaust system. Any water present in the system may form ice and break the
cooling heat exchanger.
8
Chart Environmental Chambers
System Installation
It may be possible to run the chamber without the exhaust gas plumbed out of the
building. An evaluation of the size of the room containing the chamber, as well as the
ventilation system (number of air changes) must be done to determine this. If it is
determined that the room is ventilated well enough to not plumb the exhaust gas out of
the building, it is highly recommended to install an oxygen monitor in the vicinity of the
chamber to ensure safe working conditions for all personnel.

Operation
Operation
Check system functions and your understanding of the system by following these steps
with an empty thermal enclosure before installing the product to be tested.
1. Verify that all utilities are on-line before operating equipment. Liquid nitrogen is
required for proper cooling. (Empty or low LN2 tanks produce a mixture of liquid
and vapor which will not properly cool the chamber.) Proper voltage and phase
electrical supply are necessary for full heating capability. These requirements are
listed in the Specifications section.
2. With all function switches in OFF position, connect power to the chamber.
3. Be sure chamber enclosure door is closed securely.
4. Turn the Control Power switch to the ON position.
5. Press Reset push-button to enable control circuits.
6. Adjust temperature set points on the temperature controller to achieve desired internal
temperature.
Operator Control Switches
The control console has several selector switches and buttons. The switches/buttons are
identified on the following picture.

Operation
2. Control Power (OFF, ON)
This switch controls the 24vdc control power in the control system. If this switch is
turned OFF, all control functions will be disabled. The temperature controllers are
powered from a 115vac circuit, so they will remain powered up even if the control
power switch is turned OFF, however no heating, cooling, etc will be able to take
place.
3. Chamber Reset (push button)
This button will be illuminated under normal operation. If the Temperature Safety
controller goes into a high or low temperature alarm, this button will no longer be
illuminated. The respective heating or cooling action will not be enabled until the
alarm condition is no longer present and the Chamber Reset button has been pressed.
4. Air Safety (up, down; touch pad)
This controller is located inside the control box and is not to be adjusted by the
operator. The controller has pre-set alarm set points to protect the chamber from
thermal run-away and extreme temperature conditions.
5. SERIAL COMM (communications connection)
This connector is provided on the back of the control box for future serial
communications with the Watlow controller. The cable that is attached to this
connector is coiled up inside the control panel1.
CAUTION: If the chamber is left with the circulation fan running, and either no
temperature set point, or no liquid nitrogen supply, the internal chamber
temperature will rise. This rise in temperature could damage product inside
the chamber if it is not controlled.
The following graph shows the rise in internal chamber temperature with the circulation
fan running and no cooling output being applied. It is important to note that the
circulation fan does generate a small amount of heat, which causes the internal chamber
temperature to rise slightly from ambient to about 28°C. This data assumes the chamber
started at ambient temperature, there was no live heat generating product in the chamber,
and neither heat nor cool outputs are being applied.

❏ Air Safety Controller Operation
WARNING!:
The alarm set point of this device should never be set higher
than +200°C or lower than -80°C as these are the maximum
and minimum design temperatures of the chamber system.
A temperature Hi/Lo limit control protects the chamber against thermal runaway due to a
primary controller fault or control device failure. The controller is mounted inside the
control box and is not to be adjusted by the operator. The input to the Hi/Lo limit control
is a shielded type T thermocouple. The thermocouple is mounted in the air-flow plenum
and is not directly visible.
The temperature safety controller has two independent set points. One set point is a high
temperature safety and the other set point is for low temperature safety. If the chamber
exceeds the set point of the high temperature safety, the temperature safety controller will
issue an alarm (the red A1 indicator will no longer be visible), which will stop any
further heat from being applied by the chamber’s heaters. If the chamber goes below the
set point of the low temperature safety, the temperature safety controller will issue an
alarm (the red SP indicator will no longer be visible), which will stop any further cooling
functions by the chamber. The red “A1” and “SP” indicators are illuminated when the
alarm conditions are not present.
When either of the alarm conditions occur, the RESET button on the front of the chamber
control panel will no longer be illuminated. The heating/cooling output will not be active
until the alarm condition is no longer present and the RESET button has been pushed.
The RESET button will become illuminated upon pushing it when no alarm conditions
are present.

System Maintenance
System Maintenance
Maintenance of this equipment should be done by a qualified technician. High voltage
electrical systems, cryogenic plumbing, and mechanical systems all represent a potential
for injury or death. The main power must be removed from the chamber, and the liquid
nitrogen supply should be disconnected prior to servicing this equipment. It is a good
practice to keep a maintenance log for the system. The log should contain the tasks that
must be accomplished and when they were performed.
Chart Industries does offer a service contract in which we will send a technician out to do
routine maintenance items. Different plans are available. If interested, please call 1-888877-3093 for details.
❏ Maintenance Tasks to be Performed on a Daily Basis:
1. Check the high and low temperature settings of the air safety controller to insure that
they are set to the appropriate settings for the product that is being tested. The high
temperature set point (SP) should never be any higher than 200°C. The low
temperature set point (AL-2) should never be set lower than -80°C.
2. Make sure that the LN2 supply is on and that there is sufficient LN2 to perform your
test. The pressure of the LN2 should also be verified and maintained at less than 175
psig.
❏ Maintenance Tasks to be Performed on a Monthly Basis:
1. The proper function of the safety control devices should be checked on a regular
basis. Replace any items that may be damaged or worn. These would include the
ON/OFF switch and door proximity switch.
2. Check the air safety circuit high temperature trip point by lowering the setting of the
product safety (SP) below 30°C and programming the system set point to 45°C to
verify that the safety circuit trips at the high temperature it was set for and heating is
disabled. Check the product safety circuit low temperature trip point (AL-2) by
raising the setting of the air safety (AL-2) above 0°C and programming the system set
point to -15°C to verify that the product safety trips at the low temperature it was set
for.
3. The electrical compartment should be kept clean and vacuumed if necessary.
4. The current draws of the major components (blower motor and heater) should be
checked with an amp probe and recorded for future reference to determine if there is
any irregularity. Extreme caution must be taken whenever working with high voltage
components. Increased current draws may be an early sign of heater problems.
14
Chart Environmental Chambers
System Maintenance
5. The seals and gaskets on the doors floors and ports should be inspected for adequate
sealing. Remove any foreign materials that may be embedded in the gasket. Worn or
damaged gasket should be replaced.
6. Check all the fasteners on the system and tighten if necessary.
❏ Maintenance Tasks to be Performed Every Three Months:
1. Measure and record the resistance of the heater. Changes in these measurements over
time can help predict any future heater elements failing.
❏ Maintenance Tasks to be Performed on an Annual Basis:
1. Calibrate the Watlow controller.
2. Inspect seats of solenoid valve. Chart recommends replacing the valve as a
preventative maintenance measure against thermal run-away conditions due to
solenoid valve failure.
