This chamber is made of heavy steel. For operator safety, there is a door-switch controller (interlock). The firing line comes in on the right-hand side. A camera port is on the left-hand side. There is an overhead fluorescent light. A flue at rear left permits forced air evacuation.
The test chamber weighs about 210 pounds (95 kg). It is about 24 inches (61 cm) on a side. We routinely use this type of chamber in our laboratory to explode up to 2 grams of high explosive.
