LabTest Certification Inc. can perform Blowing Sand and Dust testing in accordance with MIL-STD-810.

For products likely to be exposed to environments in which dry blowing sand or blowing dust are a factor, these tests help to evaluate the ability of those products to withstand their environment.

Products can be affected by a blowing sand and dust environment throughout the year in various parts of the world, and seasonally in many more regions.

Surfaces, seals, electrical circuits and joints are just a few features which can be adversely affected if subjected to blowing sand and dust so the ability of a product to withstand blowing sand and dust environments is an important factor to consider during the design process and to verify during the testing process.

With our dedicated Blowing Sand and Dust chamber, LabTest can tailor many of the test conditions to suit the product requirements, including but not limited to:

  • Temperature
  • Air velocity
  • Dust or sand concentration
  • Dust or sand composition
  • Orientation of the equipment under test
