Blowing sand and dust is encountered in many geographical locations where airborne equipment are used in airplanes. Such equipment need to be tested for blowing sand and dust to determine their capability to withstand such environmental or desert conditions.
Sand and dust can cause equipment to fail to operate, specially for moving components where they can cause severe damage to seals, shafts, electrical contacts, bearings, etc.
Thermodyne Engineering Ltd. is equipped to do such tests in accordance with RTCA/DO-160 Section 12 and MIL-STD-810 for all categories and procedures under ambient and elevated temperatures.
