exposure temperature range


ECSS-E-ST-31-02C Rev.1


maximum temperature range to which a TPHTE is exposed during its product life cycle and which is relevant for thermo-mechanical qualification


  • NOTE 1 The internal pressure at the maximum temperature of this range defines the MDP for the pressure vessel qualification of a TPHTE.
  • NOTE 2 The extreme temperatures of this range can be below freezing or above critical temperatures of the working fluid.
  • NOTE 3 In other technical domains, this temperature range is typically called non-operating temperature range (see clause 4 for additional explanation).
