Environne'Tech's “innovation and application” department has just finalized the construction of a sand and dust wind test bench. With its 1m3 exhibition box, its various available easements (electric, pneumatic and hydraulic), its specifications in temperature, humidity, speed and particle concentration, as well as with the precision of the settings and monitoring, this bench becomes the new benchmark for carrying out these very special tests.
Commissioned in May 2013 at the Bourgoin test center, this bench allows Environne'Tech and Emitech Group customers to entrust larger specimens to be tested and to benefit from longer test lead times. short with the possibility in a few hours to switch from the dusty wind configuration to the sandy wind configuration.
The sand and dust wind tests are intended for on-board equipment that encounter dust conditions liable to damage them, disrupt their operation, their communications, etc. These tests make it possible to highlight leaks and penetrations. particles or even abrasion phenomena, etc.
While the reference standards calling for these tests mainly concern aeronautics and defense (DO160, GAM EG13, MIL STD810, STANAG 4370, etc.), a growing number of sectors are now specifying them: civil engineering, urban equipment, automotive, etc.
