How components, vehicles and systems perform when exposed to desert sand and dust can be vitally important, not just to the operator during use, but to the product’s lifetime overall performance.
BS EN 60529, MIL-STD-810, RTCA DO-160, and DEF STAN 00-35 address environmental conditions that may be faced by materials and products during operation. The standards provide a basis for evaluating the performance of construction, defense, commercial or consumer end-user products to real-life conditions in various regions around the world.
Element has blowing sand and dust chambers which are fully calibrated with the unique ability to record test temperature, humidity, wind speed and particle concentration values in real time. Element is UKAS and A2LA Accredited to perform blowing sand and dust per MIL-STD 810.
