MIL-STD Blowing Sand & Dust Test In Action

Posted on May 26th, 2010 by admin

Cascade TEK’s blowing sand and dust chamber has been operational now for a few weeks. So far we have tested products such as cell phones, door latches, filters and avionics equipment to the MIL-STD 810F Blowing Sand and Blowing Dust test specifications. Here is a picture of a test in action. It gives you a good idea of what this machine looks like. Check out Cascade TEK MIL-STD 810 Blowing Dust for details on how the MIL-STD 810 Blowing Dust test is performed.

Cascade TEK also performs SETTLING Sand and Dust testing, popular with automotive, avionic and entertainment component manufacturers. The SETTLING Sand and Dust tests we run most often are RTCA-DO-160, SAE J1455 and IEC 60529 IP5X and IP6X. Exposure to fine dust causes problems with moving parts, forms conductive bridges and acts as an absorbent material for the collection of water vapor. Not good.
