Weiss ST 1000 Dust Test Chamber

Dust Test Chambers

Dust tests are mainly performed to test functioning of electronic components under extreme environmental conditions. Various standards specify the test duration and composition of dust used.

The standard SAE J 575 is performed with three to five kilogrammes of unburnt Portland cement (according to ASTM C 150-77). Portland cement is especially characterised by its fine grain size.

The dust is filled in the funnel below the test space. The formation of dust within the test space is effected by compressed air injection through four special nozzles. The dust is blown and swirled in upper test space by intensive air movement. The pulse time for this action is two to 15 seconds with a brake of 15 minutes between the single impulses.

Dust formation inside the test chamber is achieved by blowing in compressed air through special nozzles. The fine cement dust is blown into the upper test space by intensive air movement. The depositing fine dust particles are collected in the funnel and returned to the dust chamber. The dust is kept dry by a heating device fixed to the floor. The compressed air in the test chamber is passed to the outside through the replaceable exhaust air filter. A built-in pressure reducer with oil and water separator serves for fine adjustment of pressure in front of the nozzle. The solenoid valve installed in the compressed air supply pipe is actuated by the control system, i.e. it opens or closes according to the pre-set times of the test cycle.
