Sand and Dust Testing

Experior Laboratories can conduct Sand and Dust testing to standards such as MIL-STD-810 Method 510. The test aims to evaluate the product’s resistance to dust particles.

Depending on the standard, different types of dusts can be used which vary in size, weight, and quantity. This helps simulate real-life scenarios and assist in determining the service life of the product. Other Sand and Dust standards, methods, and procedures include:

  • MIL-STD-810 / Method 510 Sand and Dust
  • EIA-364-50 / Dust (Fine Sand) Test Procedure for Electrical Connectors
  • EIA-364-91 / Dust Test Procedure for Electrical Connectors and Sockets
  • TIA-455-35 / Fiber Optic Component Dust (Fine Sand) Test
