More Information about Fluid Susceptibility Testing
Fluids typically utilized in aerial and ground activities, such as oils, fuels, insecticides, de-icing agents, cleaners, disinfectants, extinguishing agents, coolants, and beverages, will be tested for contamination to ensure that the unit will function properly in the given situation.
After testing, physical, chemical, and electrical characteristics are examined. The fluid susceptibility testing process is influenced by several factors, including the fluid utilized and the standard. Its chemical or fluid solution can be submerged, sprayed, and brushed.
Interior materials, such as plastics and textiles, must be resistant to common spills and cleaning solutions to retain their integrity and aesthetic appeal. Aviation components must adhere to a variety of worldwide, national, and industry-specific aerospace and defense standards. Commercial avionics standard RTCA DO-160 (Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment), UK Ministry of Defence standard DEF STAN 00-35, and US military standard MIL STD 810 are all examples of this.
