More Information about Fluid Susceptibility Testing
Equipment is contaminated with liquids or substances typically used in airborne and ground activities, such as oils, fuels, insecticides, de-icing agents, cleaners, disinfectants, extinguishing agents, coolants and beverages, to ensure that the equipment functions properly in the given situation.
After testing, physical, chemical, and electrical characteristics are examined. The fluid susceptibility testing process is influenced by several factors, such as the fluid utilized and the standard. Contamination can be carried out by immersion, spraying or brushing.
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 standards for aerospace and defense. 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.
