Hillsboro, OR (PRWEB) July 13, 2010
Cascade TEK, a leading product reliability testing lab has recently purchased a blowing sand and dust testing chamber for MIL-STD-810F, Method 510.4 testing requirements. The sand and dust chamber's extensive data logging capabilities are providing engineers with an exceptional amount of test data to satisfy requirements called out for in Method 510.4 – blowing sand and dust (http://www.cascadetek.com/sand-dust-testing.html).
Exposure to sand or fine dust can cause problems with moving parts, form conductive bridges, act as an unwanted absorbent material for the collection of water vapor, or affect and totally inhibit mechanical action. Cascade TEK's new Blowing Sand and Dust Chamber is one of a few available for testing in the country and performs the strict tests called for to guarantee such problems do not occur.
Cascade TEK has rapidly grown to become a highly respected product testing agency (http://www.cascadetek.com/testing-services.html) depended upon by major companies such as Microsoft and Boeing. Their success is due in large part to a commitment to stay at the forefront of the industry. Investment in this sand and dust test chamber represents their continued dedication to this vision.
“Our sand and dust testing capabilities are now complete,” said Mary Babitz, VP of Cascade TEK. “We now offer sand and dust testing for military, automotive and commercial product testing requirements – we have covered all bases with this new test chamber.”
Cascade TEK is a fully accredited testing laboratory and carries multiple accreditations including A2LA, DSCC, and ISTA (http://www.cascadetek.com/a2la-accredited-test-lab.html).
