MIL-STD-810E Silica Dust and Silica Sand

The primary emphases of MIL-STD-810E are tailoring a materiel item’s environmental design and test limits to the conditions that the specific materiel will experience throughout its service life, and establishing laboratory test methods that replicate the effects of environments on materiel, rather than trying to reproduce the environments themselves.

MIL-STD-810G Blowing Dust and Blowing Sand

The primary emphases of MIL-STD-810G are tailoring a materiel item’s environmental design and test limits to the conditions that the specific materiel will experience throughout its service life, and establishing laboratory test methods that replicate the effects of environments on materiel, rather than trying to reproduce the environments themselves. MIL-STD-810G, Method 510.5 Sand and Dust method is used to evaluate all mechanical, optical, electrical, electronic, electrochemical, and electromechanical devices likely to be exposed to dry blowing sand or blowing dust-laden atmospheres. MIL-STD-810G Blowing Dust (Made from Arizona desert sand as a substitute for Red China Clay) MIL-STD-810G Dust procedure: This test is performed to help evaluate the ability of materiel to resist the effects of dust that may obstruct openings, penetrate into cracks, crevices, bearings, and joints, and to evaluate the effectiveness of filters. The particle size distribution is 100% by weight less than 150 microns, with a median diameter…
